Okay this might be a weird request but.... How do I effectively transfer beer from one bottle to another without major losses to foam?
Here's the story. All my beer is in swingtops. Family comes over from Germany and I have a beer in primary that was going to be bottled for them to take home. But, flight plans change... The rotator gets moved and bammmm.. They gotta leave in now in 5 days and this beer won't be ready.
So, I have 2 cases of beer in swingtops. Is there any way I can transfer these to regular bottles for the trip over? Does the empty bottle have to be the same temp as the full ones? Do I dump in a bottling bucket and transfer and hope for the best? Slightly swoosh the yeast into suspension and see if I get more carb after re-bottling?
Or do I just bite the bullet and send them away with the swingtops? Need your help guys..!
