Interesting... it took me a while to read all 40 some odd pages and then make my own BMBG. Curious though... has anyone ever transferred by this method to a growler and what size stopper would you need ?

Depends on what growler you're using. Flip top or screw cap?

I'm pretty sure a number 5 stopper works on the screw caps, but don't quote me on that. I have a flip top growler that has a much bigger opening.

Tried this out for the first time tonight on a Honey Blonde. Works great! I can't wait to see how the beer ages compared to carbonating with dextrose. A couple of notes:

1) I wasted waaayyy too much beer, at least a litre. I will get better at this now that I have the process figured out.

2) I hope I got the carbonation about right. The beer temp was around 50 degrees under 15 psi. Hmmm...looking at a force carb table that should be just right. Blind luck! Next time I will pay closer attention to this beforehand.

So, does this eliminate the sediment at the bottom of homebrew bottles? Or will there still be sediment unless you filter the beer? Some of the people that try my homebrew are weirded out by the sediment on the bottom.
I try to explain that it is normal and just to pour it into a glass, but they are used to their "Coors light" (insert any light beer here).

Yep, by force carbonating in a keg, then bottling, you eliminate the sediment. Typical bottle sediment is yeast from bottle conditioning.

Depends on what you mean by sediment. If you mean yeast sediment from secondary fermentation in the bottle, yes, it will eliminate that because you're not performing a secondary fermentation. However, if your beer in the keg has other suspended particles. For me, most often this is hops from dry hopping but it can also be a tiny bit of yeast sediment from when I transferred from the fermenter into the keg, though that tends to filter out after pouring a few pints from the keg because the dip tube pulls it up pretty quickly. This is definitely a great method for bottling up exactly what you want/need with great results.
