I'm not naive or or cocky enough to think that my beer is good enough to win anything, but I'm interested in finding some local competitions in which to solicit legitimate opinions of what I'm doing. But now that I've gone to kegging, I was hoping to find out the best way to bottle beer for said competitions. In my online research, I have seen several recommendations for both commercial and homemade beer guns, though the information on how long the bottle will stay carbed is sketchy. I know that I could rack a small amount into my bottling bucket, then prime the bottles. If it's a same-day competition, I could see simply bottling from the keg, capping on foam, and being fine for the short period. But some bigger competitions will have a period of a week or 2 between submissions and judging. Advice?
