The Blichmann Beer Gun is one such device; I recently acquired one and once First up, heed the warnings on the instructions–the beer gun is not designed to. In this video I set up my Blichmann bottle filler beer gun. There are of course instructions, the filler itself, beer line, and a cleaning brush is all you get with the.

With the Beer Gun assembled and all of the required connections made it was time to add another gas line to my gauge to be used by the gun to purge bottles with Co2 before filling them.
How To Use The Blichmann Beer Gun Bottle Filler
Once the brass flare connector is installed on blicmann gun the gas line tubing is used to connect the Beer Gun to a threaded flare connection on a ball lock gas line connector sold separately. I am glad I have mine. Installing and using the Beer Gun was a fun project to install and use and I look forward to having the ability now to bottle my beer without ever having to use priming sugar again. I have new seals and use the seal grease on them.
I love my Blichmann beer gun and use it mostly to bottle beers off my legs for competitions. I guess we all get sticker shock at times, especially when we don’t ‘think’ that something should cost as much.
The piece they give you to clean with will work for both tubes if you use both sides. This tutorial covers how to bottle your fermented beverage from a keg using the Blichmann Beer Gun.
It’s good to have those steps included in the manual though in case you ever need to disassemble the gun for cleaning or repair. Then the clip you can loosen off, not easy at all.
The colder the whole system is, the more CO2 stays in solution. Adding The Second Gas Line provided my first installation surprise when I tried to remove the existing shut off valve from the Co2 gauge.
The second line would then be used to push Co2 to the gun for purging the bottles and when the gun wasn’t in use the second line could be used to carbonate or serve a second keg of beer that was in the refrigerator.
A bench vise was needed to hold the gauge body from turning as I applied a good deal of torque needed to unscrew the shut off valve from the gauge body. The new gas line supplies the Co2 to the gun that it then uses to purge air out of the bottles before they’re filled with beer.
The Screwy Brewer: Setting Up The Blichmann BeerGun™
This instruvtions a dispensing configuration with the keg under pressure constant pressure. For this you will need to take a small flat head screwdriver and just gently give it a little twist and you can pop it right off.
Hi Mike, Thanks for your comment. In this video I set up my Blichmann bottle filler beer gun. If I do they begin to leak CO2 from the seals. For the installation in my brew room I decided to add a wye fitting to my existing Co2 gauge in order to add a second shutoff valve and gas line to the gauge.
Now that the beer line and the gas line are both 10 feet long I have plenty of slack in the lines to reach my makeshift filling station where I can easily fill my bottles. Then squeeze the button seconds.
It was not too easy to get off, and a little unnerving considering how expensive it really it. It should go all the way to the top, until the foam flows out of the bottle. The brass threads get wrapped with Teflon tape and then carefully threaded bwer the Co2 valve on the Beer Gun instrucions tightened. So squeeze it quickly, once it starts to fill, then stand the bottle up and let it continue.

Ever new process seems like more work, until it becomes part of your typical brew routine. The beer gun I received was already assembled when Blicbmann opened the box.
Cool once I got it going and figured out how to put it all together, it worked great. Luckily I found an old bench vise on a shelf in the brew room and after a bedr of wrench muscling and gently applying Teflon tape to some threads I was able to reconfigure the Co2 gauge using the new wye fitting and shutoff valves. It also forces you down the paths of producing either an uncarbonated beverage or one that is primed with a small amount of sugar in the bottle to cause a controlled fermentation that carbonates the contents of the sealed bottles…this latter approach has implications for clarity, as a bottle-carbonated beverage will have yeast sediment in it that is not as prevalent in a force-carbonated scenario…i.
Pull it out, and cap it with sanitized caps and sanitized hands.
With the twist of a wrench the connectors can be switched over from the ball lock gas connector to the gas valve instructtions the Beer Gun without having to use a screwdriver on any clamps or a knife to trim the gnu tubing. But I did manage to sanitize and refrigerate a few 12 ounce bottles and test out the new installation by filling them with cold beer. The rest is just trigger and connection pieces for gas and liquid, as well as a stopper that halts the liquid flow until you depress the trigger.
The beers I had filled I later opened after 3 days and they were perfectly carbonated, I should point out that the beer was force carbonated to 15 psi at the time of filling the bottles.
The new beer line is connected to gun and the beer out post of the keg inside the refrigerator. I chose for my installation to run a new 10 foot length of gas line from the Co2 gauge through the refrigerator wall and to put a swivel connector on the end.
I plan on leaving my kegs of carbonated beer inside the refrigerator to keep cold blifhmann entire time I bottle my beer. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. First thing you want to do is protect the piece with rubber. I quickly found out that I would need a bench vise to hold the gauge body in place while I unscrewed the parts from it. They say not too much so you can easily pull it off.
I run a mild solution of OxiClean FREE and warm water through the beer line to the gun followed by a warm water only rinse before storing it away.
