Bottling straight from spigot

(1/2) > >>

gigatropolis:
I've been bottling beer by running the beer straight out of the spigot into the bottle and wonder if this is normal procedure. Feel like I'm oxygenating the wort as it runs down the side of the bottle as if using a decanter.
  Do most of you bottle in this way or always use some type off bottling adapter type thingy?

hokerer:
I've always used a bottling wand.  Go ahead and do yourself a favor and spend the $2.75

corkybstewart:
You'e definitely adding oxygen to the beer, buy a cheap bottling wand or at least put a piece of hose over the spigot that goes all the way to the bottom of the bottle.

gigatropolis:
   Thanks for the help,

  I ordered the bottling wand + yeast culture starter kit and PH strips to continue the journey of the home brewer.
