One of the best decisions I made (about a year after starting my brewing hobby) was to move from traditional bottling to kegging my brews. Kegging is so much easier than bottling, because you clean and sanitize a 5 gallon keg instead of lots of 12oz/16oz bottles. You can also fine tune your carbonation levels, whereas with bottle conditioning whatever level you prime at, you are stuck with. But, this isn’t a post on kegging (maybe I’ll do one of those in the future), this is my review of the Blichmann Beer Gun, a stainless steel device used to bottle beer off a keg.

I decided it was time to stop pouring my draft beer out of picnic taps in my chest freezer, and to finally build a keezer. I timed the build (quite conveniently) when my dad came to visit me for the week. It was a good decision, because he had great ideas from building the collar, to putting it on wheels.
