The ins and outs of putting your beer into kegs.

Keg storage in summer

Postby Growler & 1/2 Pint » Wednesday Feb 07, 2007 6:29 pm

Got a quick question about storing full kegs in Summer. Seeing as its winter in the states at the moment I'm about to embark on a brewing mission to stockpile a few kegs for the hotter months. I understand that after siphoning the fermented brew into the keg and purging the headspace of oxygen all should be good till I'm ready to hook it up and drink. my question is, will storing said purged kegs in a hot environment spoil the beer? Now, I'm not talking 40C in the sun, more like inside the closet in an apartment but with an ambient temperature that can get into the 30's during the summer.

cheers

Quick edit and question Number 2, can I just get away with purging the headspace before storing, or should I carb up the kegs then store?

Hi all. I was looking for bike storage in summers and I am here. I hope I am not posting at wrong place. I want to know from you experts if anyone knows about providers of bike (link removed) storage in Canberra. I also want tips on choosing storage facilities anywhere. Thanks in advance!
