2 things! Michigan and keg/bittling help.
 
Ok first thing is I'm curious if I keg my beers and then want to bottle then can I pour them straight in from the tap without adding sugar to the bottle? Another thing is I'm just curious who on this forum is from Michigan. I was just curious if there was anyone near me that I could compare ideas with etc etc I'm in lower michigan. I'm in lapeer which is near flint,davison,grandblanc.......

I am not from Michigan but you can do that with a special wand attachment. I am not sure what the wand attachment is but I know that they exist and friends of mine have done it. Basically you can not put the bottle up to the faucet and pour that way.

A huge majority of this forum seems to be from MI.

I remember one being called a "bottling gun" by a home brewer on youtube. The co2 tank powers it I think. It's like a pressurized bottling wand.

Michigan rules. Hey Lapeer, I grew up in Almont and lived in Imlay City before moving down south.

Here's a great thread about bottling from the keg.

Tons of great brewing going on in Michigan with places like Bell's, New Holland, North Peak, Jolly Pumpkin, Right Brain, Detroit Beer Co., Sherwood Brewing just to name a few. That has got to trickle to the home base!

To answer your second question, I'm in Macomb MI now (walking distance to a great homebrew store Cap N' Cork!), but grew up in Fenton which is in the Flint Metro League with the Lapeer schools.

It appears that those of us from Michigan are the largest geographic sector on this forum. There's over 500 of us on the Michigan Masher's Subforum alone.

Well no offense to other states but Michigan is the great beer state lol. I was just curious because for all the people I know I only know a few who are into brewing and I don't know any any shops that are too close to here... Like we have lager mill in frankenmuth, cap n cork, and hop mans but there all over a hour away for me
