Title: Moving Beer from Growler to bottles ?
Post by: Boston Brewer on December 19, 2010, 03:47:02 PM
I know that this is a bit off-topic, but ...

I bought a growler of beer from a local pub and want to keep some
for later in the month. I figure I can transfer this to bottles, but how.
I have kegs, CO2, etc and can fill bottles from kegs -

any great ides for filling bottles from a growler ?

Thanks in advance...

Dave

Get everything cold. Slowly pour into bottle, cap.

I don't think I'd bottle it.  I'd put it in a 1L or 2L PET bottle and put a carbonator cap on it.  Give it some CO2 and it will stay fine for a month, easily.  But if you do bottle it, chill the growler and the bottles to 32F, and gently pour the beer into the bottle with the bottle at a 45 degree angle.  Cap on foam.
