I have a Belgian golden strong ale ready for packaging that I would like to bottle for Xmas presents. It was fined with gelatin and it's been cold conditioning for over a month and the clarity is absolutely brilliant and I want to keep it that way. I would like to carbonate it to ~3.5 volumes. Normally I would prime it and bottle condition it and be done, but I would like to keep it as polished as possible and I'm wondering if I can bottle it with a high degree of carbonation with the beergun. Has anyone used it this way with good success? Could I do it by simply adding a longer or smaller diameter liquid line to keep the foaming down?
If not, I'm wondering if I can force carb it to say, 3 volumes and then bottle with a bit of priming sugar to get it the rest of the way there. I recently had a Victory saison. It was highly carbed and the label said it was bottle conditioned, but upon inspection of the sediment, all I could find was crystal clear beer with 2 flocs of yeast rolling around the bottom of the bottle. I'm guessing this was accomplished with a partial force carbonation/bottle conditioning? I've bottle conditioned many beers and refined my process to where I had a very thin layer of sediment,but 2 flocs?
