Default Bottle from the keg

So I just had a quick question. If you put beer from a keg to a bottle. will it loose carbonation? I just need to know cause I was wanting to send some beers to family but the awesome beer I have right now is in a keg.. I would really like for them to taste it.

I've gotten by filling growlers for friends just using tubing from the tap to the bottom of the growler and capping on foam... seems to last for a few days. Using the system as described above, or other such systems is the way to go for longer term results...

I did what was on that post but since ive never done it I just wanted to see how long it would last. I guess ill have to bottle like five and open one every week as a small experiment. Thanks for the quick post norsk.

do a search on the bowie bottler, it works great for bottling from the keg.

+1 on the bowie bottler. Simple, effective, no changes necessary to gas pressure needed.

There's no need to do a lengthy experiment... either it will work or it won't. You can try one bottle, put it in the fridge for a day, and then check it.
If you had a bottle that went flat in a couple weeks, it wasn't from bottling from a keg, it would be from loosing pressure through the cap seal.
Trust me, bottling from a keg works just fine. Make sure the beer is cold, and you are bottling through cold lines and a cold bottle wand into ice-cold bottles. Leave only about 1/2" head space, and cap onto foam.
