What I ment was they are a blichmann beer gun copy and the blichmann is not a counter pressure filler. It only puts co2 in at normal pressure and then you fill the bottle like you pour beer in a glass. It cannot fully eliminate the air so some dissolved oxygen will end up in the beer thus shortening its life span. Beer guns ae only good for taking beer out of a keg and in to a bottle to then by used in the next 2 hours or so. D. O. is the enemy of good beer. ;)

Nice work Mr D!

Looking at picture in reply #3 can you please explain the connections and the taps.

How do you raise it up to put a bottle on?

Video would be great!

I will do a video soon. The whole white panel is hung on a set of kitchen drawer runners and is held down on each side with a spring. The 3 taps are all picnic taps so they are quick to use.

Left tap is co2 in. Right tap is both co2/air out and also a control valve to allow the bottle vent slowly as it fills

Pictures keep falling over ???. Here is the out side on the right for venting co2/air and then later for controlled bleed off of counter pressure.

I see there's some competition for Eigor - https://www.craftbeergrowlers.co.uk/pegas-craftap-3-0-2/. A snip at only £5400
