carbonation question.

Postby Suthrncomfrt1884 » Wed Jun 10, 2009 9:00 pm

This is probably an easy question for someone, but seeing as I've never done it, I'm a little confused. I'm still somewhat new to kegging (about to keg my 5th batch) so I'm still learning.

I made a double IPA for a friends birthday party coming up in a few weeks. It will be ready to keg here in a few days, but I really don't have the room to spare in my refrigerator unless absolutely necessary.

Can I still carbonate my beer even though it's not at serving temp, or will it cause problems? I'm assuming it's no big deal since you carbonate bottles at room temp, but I wanted to be positive before I hook the CO2 up.

It will be sitting at room temp (might get up to higher 80's next week) until the 27th. I will be bringing it to his house early on the morning of his party to stick it in his fridge. Are there any issues that could come from this?
