removing kegs from chest freezer to condition
« on: November 22, 2014, 03:45:17 PM »
I had a beer in my chest freezer carbing and when i took a pull i realized in needed somemore conditioning so i removed it and now its at room temp again and i plan on leaving it for at least a month or 2..My question is will the temp change from 38*F to room temp hurt the beer?

RDWHAHB.  Or just leave it in the chest freezer if you have room.

It will just speed up what would also happen in the chest freezer.  This includes maturing and staling - its all a matter of time and temperature.
