Hi all,
I made up one of those counter pressure bottle filling thingys. But was wondering what pressure i should bottle at. Or does it not matter as long as i have positive pressure? I just dont wanna blow the botle up in front of me.

Easy, fill it behind you.

Seriously, fill at the same pressure the keg is at (serving temp). If you made the "keg powered bottle filler" at http://brewiki.org/CounterPressureBottleFiller then you have no choice.

It also helps to prevent foaming if you prechill the bottles first as well.
I pressure the bottle up at serving pressure 100kpa, evacuate a few times to get rid of any O2 in it, then let the beer in slowly by adjusting the bleed valve.
