You can do it as simply as a bottling wand stuffed into a picnic tap with the springy bit removed. I have a beer gun, but for 6 bottles or so its not worth breaking it out. I do this all the time.

Advantages are clearer beer in the bottles (no sediment), you know the carb level, and it's faster.

touche, although that was a growler, and i suggested regular bottling   ;D

goschman:
Thanks for all of the good ideas all.

My buddy convinced me to come over, transfer 1 gallon for bottling and the rest to the keg. I should get about 10 bottles to condition and consume independently. I calculated needing 24 g of table sugar for priming which should yield more consistency than I was planning. The keg will end up with less than 5 gallons but there will be 3 other beers on tap that night so it shouldn't be a big deal.
