I went to bottle my saison from the keg last night, and was having a hell of a time getting my Blingmann beergun to pour without foaming up the neck of the bottle. Most of the bottles I filled would be considered "low pours." Not ideal, to say the least. I'm sure others have run into this problem, and hopefully someone has a good solution -- I'm thinking something in my process should be adjusted. Here's some of the info from my procedure last night:
- Saison carbbed @ 3.5 volumes
- CO2 input to beergun @ 3psi
- CO2 input to keg @ 3psi
- 6 ft. line b/w keg and beergun - the one that came w/ the gun (should it be longer?)
I did notice that a lot of co2 was coming out of solution in the line between the keg and the beergun, and I tried to fill the bottles quickly to limit the accumulation of foam in the line.
So, what are some of your strategies for bottling highly carbbed beer with the beer gun?
