Default Can i still bottle

Have a brown ale in a keg. It's cold and carbonated. It's about 8.2 ABV and could use some age....still very strong. Can I bottle from the keg? Any help would be great!

Sure, there are ways to bottle from a keg. The three most popular options are the blichmann beer gun, a counterpressure bottle filler, and BierMuncher's bottle filler.

So I can just siphon into bottles using my bottle filler attachment? No priming sugar of course.

No, most likely not. It'll foam like crazy.

Your bottle filler attachment should fit right into a picnic tap. Turn the pressure on your keg down until there is just enough to push beer through the lines. Fill bottles straight from keg, its a piece of cake.
