Default Transferring kegged beer to a growler

Once my kegged beer carbonates correctly, will I be able to transfer the beer to a growler without any pressure issues (explosions, etc.)?

You should have no problems at all. I do it all the time.

You should be fine. I fill growlers off my tap using the bottling wand on my perlick taps. Works great with little foam.

i have no problem filling my growlers, if you get foaming issues, try using a tube connected to the tap that reached the bottom of the growler, like they do in brew pubs. i'm sure the same would apply for bottles. there's also the Blinchmann bottle filler for filling bottles from a keg, seems like a pretty neat device. i plan on getting one in the near future.

thats my question, if other guys have had no problem with just filling bottles from their keg tap and then capping the bottles......whats the point of that $100 item?

It seems like everytime I fill a growler it de-carbonates rather quickly, is there a way to keep the carbenation so that it lasts a few days or is it really just for short transports and meant to be consumed in short order?
