I purged first then filled and sealed in my swing top bottles right away
What temp was the fz while you were carbonating?

When I bottle from a keg (using a beer gun), I like to have the beer around 2oC at 15 PSI. Then vent it to around 3 PSI as you did. Bottles at 2oC too. You’ll lose some carbonation during the bottling, in fact you want to, to ensure you’re capping on foam to reduce O2.

I find that gives me the carbonation I want when I pour.

Btw, you can’t trust the carbonation if the bottle stays cold after filling, you need to warm it up then cool again to really see its carbonation.

(Ed: grammar)

It would have started at 2-3C, whatever the ferm fridge is set to when I opened the door and hooked everything up. Not sure what temp it would have kicked up to by the time I finished bottling. I think having the bottles at fridge temp will help next time.

I usually store at room temp then chill for at least 6 hours before drinking so that part is already in the playbook.
