    Keg to Bottle

    I don't have a counterflow device to fill from my kegs to the bottle. I am wanting to enter my beer in our groups collaboration contest and wondered if it would be ok to tap from the keg to the bottle and sit for 2-3 days capped? Or would it flatten out? Any other solutions?

    Keggin Set up

    What is the best site you guys have found to get a basic kegging set up from? I already have a CO2 tank.... I guess I would just need regulator, kegs, and hoses. Ultimate plan would be to do a Keezer... so eventually taps and a distributor would be needed as well.
