The way I'd do it for now would be:

ssh guix build mypackage
ssh guix publish
ssh -N -R 8081:localhost:8080
guix build --substitute-urls=http://localhost:8081 mypackage

First, and only once, you need to authorize your machine to use
substitute packages from the beefy server
ssh guix archive --authorize
scp /tmp/whatever
guix archive --authorize < /tmp/whatever

Let me know if that works for you.
