Some people have worried about infection from the tap. Do y'all recommend any particular cleaning procedure (cleaning the tap) before filling a bottle. With enough practice, it can become a pretty fast tear down, brush the SS steel tubes clean, soak in sanitizer, then a pretty fast assembly. The first time was frustrating, but I learned how to do it with no drama.
PS. I have a beer gun. It is a pain to clean before and after use.
I have done it many times and would not call it hard. But it is a lot more steps than filling from the tap.
My cheap and easy method for taking a beer or two to a party is:
1. Dip bottle and cap in starsan
2. Turn pressure down to 1psi and vent the keg.
3. Fill from cobra tap directly. No tubes or bottling canes connected to the tap. Just pour slowly down the side of the bottle. I get very little foam with low pressure.
4. Cap (usually on foam).
5. Reset regulator to serving pressure.
I don't think this method is sanitary or oxygen free. So I only use it when the beer will be consumed quickly.
