Kegging and Bottling / Re: Bottling from keg at room temperature
« on: June 08, 2013, 09:54:53 PM »
So bought a cheap trashcan, got a bunch of ice and chilled the keg. Let it chill while i went for a run came back ready to bottle. Poured a glass first, very little carbonation. So apparently 2 weeks at 30 psi at room temperature did next to nothing. I cranked it from serving psi to 30 and shook vigorously for a few minutes and I could easily hear the CO2 getting into the beer. I'm in a bind now because I need to bottle tonight at the latest. I cranked it up to 30 and shook till i stopped hearing the bubbling then purged and put it on serving psi and it was a well carbed brew. I have since put it back to the correct carbing pressure and will bottle tonight. My fingers are crossed.

This is actually my first time bottling from a keg. I have absolutely no space in my fridge to chill the keg before bottling so I'm having to bottle at room temperature. The keg was also carbonated at room temperature. I've read that it can be done and I experimented on a few bottles (which I chilled). I'm basically just using tubing and filling at a very low pressure. With my two test bottles, one came out lightly carbonated, the other basically flat. Is the CO2 just coming out of solution during bottling? It hasnt been coming out super foamy which would suggest that. Anyway, any tips on bottle from a keg at room temperature would be greatly appreciated.
