I see a lot of posts/threads about bottling from a keg using a beer gun or other methods, but I have a different question. I wanted to bottle a couple of 22 oz. bottles of beer from a corney keg that I just filled. Instead of racking the beer from the secondary into the bottles, then kegging the rest, I filled and sealed the keg first. I put a few carbonation tablets in each empty bottle, connected the filled corney keg to my CO2 tank, and filled 2 bottles from the tap using about 3-5 psi. I forgot to chill the bottles beforehand, but I'm not sure if that makes any difference.
Since the beer hasn't been carbonated yet, I can't see how this would cause any problems with the bottled beer? I read about oxidation from bottling carbonated beer, but I haven't seen anyone mention this method. Basically I'm bottling the same way I would using an auto-siphon and wand, I'm just using CO2 to get the beer from the tap into the bottles.
Any comments would be appreciated. Worst case is that I only lost 2 bottles of my precious homebrew...if they do oxidize and go bad.
