Default Keg To Bottle Transfer?

I kegged a beer last night and for a slew of reasons, I now want to get this beer into bottles. I did add dextrose before kegging to naturally carb. Is it too late? Can I just move it from the keg to bottle with no repercussions today? It's been less than 24 hours since I kegged. Any advice will be helpful!

Thanks

i'd say shake it a bit to get everything back into suspension then bottle.

Do some searching on the forum...this topic has been discussed quite a bit.

For a keg you typically use a WHOLE lot less priming sugar.

Let it ferment out the sugar (warm) for a week or 2, regularly venting pressure, or use an airlock.

Re prime the appropriate amount and bottle at 2-3 psi from the keg.

I doubt it'd be a problem (as long as you give it a good shake or upending due to any settlement of sugar. Otherwise, you're pretty much looking at it as if it was a bottling bucket. The 24hours does mean that some of the dextrose may have been consumed, but I doubt it will be that much of an issue.
