Yeah, I've done this on my fermenter as I have to do partial boils, but never really thought about it in terms of bottling until today. I'm getting to the point where I'm starting to look at the nittier & grittier things that I can work to improve on.
It seemed logical to me, but just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to end up undercarbing by doing this.
