I have recently barrelled my first batch of lager, I bought a keg barrel especially for this and when I put it in the barrel I put the correct amount of sugar like it said to in the instructions for a barrel.
My question is, I want to transfer some from the barrel to a few bottles to chill in the fridge, as I have already put the priming sugar in the barrel I will not need to add anymore to a bottle will I?
I realise that your supposed to decide when you transfer if you want it in a barrel of bottle but I mostly want to use my barrel its just that every now and then I will want to put some in the fridge.
I'm not quite sure on the scientific explanation but when I upgraded from 12 oz. bottles to 1.5L bottles, I had to reduce the priming sugar by 25% per my LHBS owner for fear of creating large grenades. Before knowing this, I had kegged with a bottling dosage and had to bleed off excess CO2 for a couple of days just to calm the beer down.
