I put the beer gun into a growler with a little star San in it between fills. I thought the beer gun was real easy to pick up. Just make sure you depressurize your keg first with the gas off. Then after hooking the gun up turn the gas back on to about psi.

Beer gun works awesome and is a very reliable unit. That God damned black nipple will either fall off or lose its seal at the absolute worst time possible and you will have a holy mess on your hands.
I suggest buying an extra right out of the gate. Just got a new one and have yet to have a problem with it. Comparitively the beer gun is way more time consuming to set up, but having the ability to flush bottles with c02 is a pretty nice piece of mind.

I ended up like mikehartigan, just rest the pistol grip on the edge of counter and leave the business clean end suspended over open air. Squirt with starsan as you see fit. Not usually considered, but if you wish to bottle carb you can add sugar to keg and dispense with the gun very easily no CO2 off-gassing.
The gun is overkill for this task but certainly works. Just bottled some Belgians 3. Stuff can build up in the CO2 tube. How do I know this? Assembly can be trial and error the first few times. You get faster. You should see John Blichmann do it. He says he is nowhere as quick as the lady that does it all day long in the shop.

The Blichmann BeerGun & Using Quick Disconnects
I bought the basic kid that comes with the filter, beer line, and cleaning brush. I opted not to get the accessory kit; instead I picked up the rest of what I would need separately. Once it is all put together, in order to fill put the gun all the way down a chilled bottle, then squeeze to clear the head space, tilt the bottle and squeeze the trigger quickly. Then tilt the bottle upward as you fill, let the foam flow out the top and stop quickly. Approximate times in the video are noted for reference. Never got around to using it, thought I would be doing some bottling and I have not used it yet.
So the instructions tell you to take everything completely apart, there is one piece in particular that starts the process. Get Our Updates By Email. That is the biggest negative for me. Since I have an extra instructilns for the beer out, I can disconnect that part on the kegerator and hook it up. To make the remaining connections needed in order to use the Beer Gun I used the additional parts that came with the Beer Gun Accessory Kit.
