New serving fridge questions
« on: April 10, 2012, 05:23:17 PM »
I have finally achieved the dream of having a separate room for my brewery.  Therefore I now have a fridge for serving, a side by side, and a deep freezer for fermentation.  All is new to me, but most importantly...what is the best temp to set my serving fridge?  It'll hold 3 cornys and plenty of bottles, so there will be a mix of ales and lagers.  Force carbonation will be done in this fridge but not lagering.  I am new to lager brewing and am eager to be able to do it right, but I hate having the flavor of my ales muted because they are too cold. 
Thanks!

It depends on the fridge totally.... but I heard that you can set 0 degree as maintainable temperature some fridges.

I leave my serving 'fridge set at 40 degrees.
Usually, one of the five beers on tap is a lager.

According to the Cicerone program the standard is 38 degrees Fahrenheit.

For your English ales you can pour them and let them warm up slowly in your hand, or you can bottle them and keep them in  the cellar. Or with the myriad of refrigeration equipment that you have, keep one at cellar temps.
Frank C.

And thereof comes the proverb: 'Blessing of your
heart, you brew good ale.'
