Default Force Carb and Bottling

Though I think I already know the answer to this question I will ask it anyways. Ive got the equipment for kegging other than a refridgerator to utilize it for. So right now I have a batch fermenting in a cornie, what I'd like to do is put the co2 on it and bottle from there with my bottling gun. Question is do I still prime with the priming sugar ? Im assuming not but want to make sure as it is my first time going down this road, better safe than sorry !!!!

No need to prime the bottles if you are force carbing the keg with your CO2 canister.

Have you already racked off your yeast cake? I would assume your dip tube would be hopelessly buried under sludge if you're using the same vessel for primary and carbonation.

Did you primary in the corny or rack to it after fermentation was finished?

IF you don't have a yeast cake in there, you could carbonate with CO2 (use this chart to figure out the pressure at temperature) and then fill bottles with the bottling/beer gun.

I keg all my brew these days. I do bottle some of what's on tap via either a beer gun, or other fitting. Since I transfer off the yeast cake into serving kegs, this presents no issue. IF you actually fermented (fully) in the corny keg, then you'll either need to transfer to a fresh keg, or cut your dip tube down so that you don't get a bottle full of yeast/sediment/trub.

Then just carbonate it via CO2 and bottle it up when it's ready.

Bottling warm carbonated beer is all but impossible though- it foams like a SOB.

As usual, she's right. I forgot about that part.

You're only 50 bucks and a few cubic feet away from salvation on this point. A fridge or a keezer is just more or less necessary for the kegging setup.
