So i want to bottle about 24 bottles amd leave the rest in the keg. My question is whether the priming sugar added, (I would have to prime the entire batch) would affect the taste of the kegged beer
I have done this before, it works just fine. The beer left in the keg will just naturally carb, and if it doesn't, you can just put more gas on it.
*edit* I have never left some in the keg, I have always bottled the whole batch that way. That being said, you still should be able to leave that beer in the keg and either let it naturally carb. If that doesn't work because of the increased head space, just put the gas on it. The yeast left will eat that small amount of sugar.
