Filling growlers from perlicks

Does anyone do this/know how to do this? The NB growler filler doesnt work for perlicks and I dont really want to buy a beer gun. I see morebeer sells one, but I don’t know the model # of my perlicks(I purchased them here from NB)

Thank you

How long ago did you purchase your faucets? If recently then chances are it is either the 525 or 575. The only difference between those is the 575 has the creamer option. If you have either the 525 or 575 this is what you need:

Awesome, thanks a bunch man :cheers:

I fill bottles from my perlicks all the time.

Reduce you pressure to 1-2psi.
Bleed off the pressure in the keg.
Place tap head in bottle mouth.
Hold bottle at slight angle.
Fill.
Cap.
Repeat.

You get very little foam in the bottle.

Cheers

That’s neat, but it’s a solution to a problem I didn’t know I had. If I had to use that, I’d never bring a growler anywhere.

I don’t even mess with bleeding the keg or adjusting the pressure, either. I just tilt the growler and dispense right into it, and cap it when full. Sure, it foams up a little, initially, but then it stops… and besides, there’s still plenty head when you pour a beer from the full growler.

I rinse the growler first with cold water to chill it.

He was specifically talking about the growler fitting. I have one and it works excellently without wasting any beer due to foam. He as well as you can do what works best for you.
