Title: Crash 'n Keg
Post by: TXFlyGuy on October 21, 2020, 08:10:57 pm
We have 10 gallons of Fest Bier that is ready to keg now. But my brewing partners have COVID-19, and are under isolation for 14 days. So we can't keg their beer until they are well.

Will it hurt to leave the beer sitting in the fermenter at 32 degrees for the next two weeks?

I hope your brewing partners are recovering well.

I have a colleague that I work with from another company that just got Covid. I got one email a week ago and then nothing. I am hoping he is okay.

Thanks.

Their ages are 55 and 63. Both are in good overall health, so they should bounce back.
In the meantime, I'm brewing "solo", with a lighter version of the Fest Bier next in line.

I can’t think of a better use case for Zoom ;)

My wife and I just kegged this 10 gallons of Oktoberfest.
Based on my small samples, it tastes as good or better than our previous efforts.
So the extended (2 weeks) time sitting at 33 degrees did not hurt it at all.
