Any ideas on how to bottle yeast free in glass? I have co2, regulators, kegs, goggles, cappers, and really thick gloves.

Would a beer gun work?

Thanks!

I am interested in trying this as well, I did a little searching on a beer brewing forum, and this is what I found. I haven't tried it.......

Here's what I have done: I attach an 8 - 10 inch piece of tubing to the exit nozzle of my picnic tap. The tubing reaches to the very bottom of the bottle. I chill the carbonated keg to about 30-32 degrees and add a very small amount of pressure (about 2lbs of pressure) - the pressure is so low that I have to lower the tap to below the keg surface for the beer to flow. All you have to do then is fill the bottles. It takes abs out 10 minutes to fill a couple six packs this way. The beer left in the tubing pours out as you remove the tube so that you can fill the bottle all the way to the top alleviating oxidation concerns.

I have not held bottles for much longer than a couple of weeks like this so I don't know how long the carbonation holds - but it seems to do well up to 2 weeks. Mostly I've just done this to give beer away or bring it too parties. It also seems to work best when the beer is slightly overcabonated.
