Default Plan to keg most but bottle some to share

Hi all,

Short time lurker, first time poster. I'm just finishing my first brew (an Irish stout) and am planning on kegging it. However, I would like to bottle some to be able to give them away as well as stash a few to see how they condition over months.

The kit i bought from the LHBS contains bottle sugar but I didn't think I needed it because I was going to keg.

So, long story short, what's the best way to leverage the keg but still bottle some? Could I bottle some before kegging and put sugar in the bottles themselves?

That looks very cool.

However, I use the tap-a-drafts right now. And the individual priming will work. Just a bit of a PITA.

My homebrew club is having a competition for January. I need to take two bottles in for it. Can I just fill two bottles up with my picnic tap and throw a cap on. It would be opened a few hours later so Im not concerned with oxygen. Is there any reason this wouldnt work.
