Wow -- that can get really messy.

My first bottle went well. "This ain't so hard", he thought. Then on the second bottle foam shot 6 feet across the garage into the chair my dear wife was occupying.

Laughter ensued.

I told you to have those towels ready!

On the bright side, the first time you drink your own homebrew poured from a perfectly sediment-free bottle, you do get a rush don't you?

Cheers,

Push, I know exactly where your coming from. I built a CPBF for about 12 bucks and tried it out a few weeks ago. The first trick is to have the beer cold and the bottles colder, a lot less foam. I bottled mine inside as it was -10 degrees here in the northeast and my biggest problem was my fingers got real numb and my fingers refused to work properly, thus, beer on the walls, floor, ceiling and face. However, Gravity is correct....ain't nuttin like suckin down a clear beer from the bottle.

What's a bottle?

This bottle thing, what the heck are you talking about and is it a good deal? That sounds like washing and work and stuff. Yuk.

Sissies...

I just stuff my cheeks with cracked grain and gargle with a vial of White Labs.
