I was wondering. If I have a high alcohol XMAS beer that I want to force carbonate in the keg and then counter pressure fill 22oz and 1/2 gallon growlers (with new metal caps) will I have to worry about loosing carbonation? And if so what is the time frame.
I suppose I could also put some priming sugar in the bottles and fill some that way and force carb the rest?
Let me know,

If the bottles are sealed well then you won't lose carbonation. The only way to lose carbonation is for the CO2 to escape to somewhere. With any glass bottle that would have to be through the cap.

I wouldn't worry about loosing carbonation if you are using a counter pressure filler...that's what they are designed for...I fill cold bottles out of a very cold keg (slowly) with no counter pressure filler and I don't loose any noticeable carbonation.
