It should go all the way to the top, until the foam flows out of the bottle. It will clear the head space and get rid of some of the air. It also forces you down the paths of producing either an uncarbonated beverage or one that is primed with a small blichmanb of sugar in the bottle to cause a controlled fermentation that carbonates the contents of the sealed bottles…this latter approach has implications for clarity, as a bottle-carbonated beverage will have yeast sediment in it that is not as prevalent in a force-carbonated scenario…i.
The new gas line supplies the Co2 to the gun that it then uses to purge air out of the bottles before they’re filled with beer.
