Short time lurker, first time poster. I'm just finishing my first brew (an Irish stout) and am planning on kegging it. However, I would like to bottle some to be able to give them away as well as stash a few to see how they condition over months.
The kit i bought from the LHBS contains bottle sugar but I didn't think I needed it because I was going to keg.
So, long story short, what's the best way to leverage the keg but still bottle some? Could I bottle some before kegging and put sugar in the bottles themselves?
