Default "Bottling" in a growler

Can I do it? I figure it would be like using a Kolsch bottle. Would I need more head space?? Thanks!!!

some people have done it with no problems. others have done it and ended up with bottle bombs.

Growlers are not meant to be able to hold pressure, so bottling in one is a risk.
