Blichmann BeerGun V2
Powered by Quiescent Flow Technology, this revolutionary bottle filler eliminates the complicated, time-consuming operation and cleaning of traditional CP bottle fillers used to fill bottles from kegs while maintaining their primary function – purging a bottle with CO2 (no oxygen pickup) and filling it with minimal foaming and carbonation loss. Couple that with the auto-fill level – and the ability to fill bottles of any depth without modification – and this filler is a clear standout.
The BeerGun™ makes filling a bottle as simple as pushing a CO2 purge valve and pulling the trigger for beer!
- One-handed intuitive operation
- Less complex than counter-pressure
- Everything that touches the beer is stainless
- Works for wine-makers, too
- Great for kegs or bottling buckets
- Simple to clean and set up
- So easy you’ll actually enjoy bottling!

We all love the simplicity and convenience of kegging, but bottling for transportation is an annoying inconvenience. We either deal with complicated counter-pressure (CP) fillers or put up with the oxygenation and foaming of filling from a tap ... or we just give up on bottling altogether. In true Blichmann Engineering fashion, the BeerGun™ takes aim at all of those common problems and easily solves them with high-quality design, expert engineering and intuitive ease of use.
Powered by Quiescent Flow Technology℠, this revolutionary new bottle filler eliminates the complicated, time-consuming operation and cleaning of traditional CP bottle fillers used to fill bottles from kegs while maintaining their primary function – purging a bottle with CO2 (no oxygen pickup) and filling it with minimal foaming and carbonation loss. Couple that with the auto-fill level – and the ability to fill bottles of any depth without modification – and this filler is a clear standout.
Quiescent Flow Technology℠ is so different and so easy to use that it’s another of our patented innovations! Our filler gradually reduces beer from keg pressure to atmospheric pressure with little turbulence, doing away with the complicated valving and cumbersome use of traditional CP filters. The result is a consistent bottle fill with little foaming and no oxygen pickup.
Foaming is caused predominantly by turbulence and sudden changes in pressure. The unique design of the BeerGun™ eliminates the need to pressurize the bottle by providing a non-throttling, quick-acting valve placed at the bottom of the filler stem and a beer-delivery system that is very low in turbulence. Competitors place their valve at the top of the filler, which forces the beer down an empty tube each time, kicking up foam along the way. Placing the valve at the bottom not only quickly immerses the valve in the beer but further reduces pressure change and turbulence, keeping the stem full of beer at all times. And because the beer is sealed in the filler stem when the BeerGun™ is removed from the bottle, it automatically provides a consistent bottle fill level.
These features, coupled with a CO2 jacketing tube for bottle purging and ergonomic valve actuators, makes filling bottles faster, intuitive, more accurate, and easier than ever! Because the BeerGun™doesn't require a pressurizing stopper, you can fill a bottle of any depth without buying different stem lengths or adding plastic hose extensions.
"As a homebrewer, I hand-filled over 10,000 bottles using every type of carbonated beer bottle filler on the market. I was able to make all of the fillers do the job, but the Blichmann Beer Gun was always the easiest to set up and to use. Stripping it down for thorough cleaning was also easier than any other device available. Today, as the owner and brewmaster of Heretic Brewing Company, when we need to hand bottle a beer for competition, we use the Blichmann Beer Gun. The Beer Gun is our filler of choice, because we're able to get dissolved oxygen levels that compare with the best of the commercial filling lines. I recommend the Blichmann Beer Gun for anyone from homebrewer to commercial brewery that needs to hand fill bottles at a commercial quality level."
