Growler Filling Tips and Tricks
Place a clean growler in your kegerator with an ounce or two of Star San in the bottom.  After the growler is completely chilled, swish the Star San around to coat the inside and discard.  Now you have a sanitized, cold and wet growler that’s ready to fill.  The cold and wet part will help reduce foaming.  Turn down the pressure on your kegerator (maybe 3 or 4 PSI) and fill using a piece of tubing on your faucet that is long enough to reach the bottom of your growler.  Doing this will keep foaming to a minimum and decrease the introduction of oxygen.  Cap on foam and you’re done.  Related: Growler Fillers

Matt found this at his local Marshall’s for just $2.  It appears to be this one… Stanley Adventure Stainless Steel Pint.  I’m marking this as YMMV (Your mileage may vary) because I’m guessing pricing and availability on this at your local Marshall’s may vary.
