comment Can I use a Growler at bottling time and how long will the beer last in this.
The amount of pressure produced will vary based on the health and amount of yeast still present in the beer. In my experience when I have add yeast at bottling I have seen pressure high enough to push the dimple out that was created from the capper. The recommendation not to use the growlers for bottle conditioning comes from the manufacture of the product.

The pressure created in the head space by the co2 produced by fermentation spikes during the first few days of bottle conditioning and is then gradually absorbed into the beer. This is due to the fact that co2 takes longer to dissolve into solution at higher temperatures than it takes the yeast to ferment the available sugar.
