I don't use the #2 stopper though. That acts as a counter pressure deal? I think I'm going to pick one up though, supposedly that helps reduce foaming too.
Yep, works pretty well.
I broke down and picked up a beer gun, get to test it out this weekend bottling a lot of beer to give away for the holidays.
Man! You didn't need to spend all that money for that thing! The cheap method is sufficient. Countless homebrewers have reported good success with it, including me. Cap on foam!
Need? No. Sufficient? Perhaps, but when bottling 5 gallons into 12oz bottles the stopper method can become very tedious and time consuming, let alone the 15 gallons that we plan on bottling to give away for Christmas. I'm not discounting the stopper method, folks just seem to be very happy with the speed and performance of the beergun.
