Hey guys,

I have had a keg in the fridge now for about 4 weeks and it is around half full..problem is that i need to move soon so i'll be taking the fridge away..my question is would taking the keg out and leaving it at room temp for a few weeks do any harm...or may it do it some good ?? I understand it may decarbonate ?

Cheers

Put about 100kpa of gas into the keg, disconnect the gas and store your keg.
When you have a new fridge put the keg in it and cool it down. Then release the pressure using the pressure release valve, attach your tap and start drinking.
This way you won't lose your carbonation.

Beers,
Doc

:p Exactly right Doc:.
The keg wont loose gas and will proberbly mature a little..
Ive left kegs out of the fridge for 2 months or more...
Not a problem...

on a related note..

I've had some beer sitting in some kegs for over a year now. (primed using a secondary fermentation in the keg) So far bottled beers have turned out fine after this sort of aging, but what about kegs? Think they'll still be OK?
