Kegging AND Bottling?
I have never ever bottled, but would like to have a sixer for a "rainy day". So now I have a carbonation question regarding both methods. I know that if you bottle, you need to add the priming sugar to the bottling bucket then rack. But I only keg and I just force carbonate it.

So my question is, how do I carbonate the bottles without adding the priming sugar? Or, do I need to rack to 2 different buckets, 1 for the keg and 1 for the bottles? If so, then how do I calculate the amount priming sugar for only 72oz?

Surely there must be an easier way to get around this....:confused:

Carb in the keg, then bottle from the keg.

There are commercial bottle fillers or you can search "We no need no stinkin beer gun"

You can also get carb tabs that you can carb individual bottles.

Yeah, I think carb tabs are probably the easiest solution if you just want a six pack or a couple 22s.

You could add apprx. tsp. of priming sugar to each bottle
