Just started fermenting The Plinian Legacy and have decided that this batch would be my first kegging attempt. Having watch several movies on the internet, I think I might have a very weak grasp on the whole process. My understanding is that it takes about 5 days to carbonate the beer inside a keg with CO2. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
My question concerns timing. I am preparing this beer for a family even in November. However, I will have to drive it 10 hours to the event. What would be the best method to insure that it arrives ready to serve at the event. Will it need to be chilled during the 10 hour drive? can I do the 5 day carbonation prior to the drive? Does it need to be cooled during the 5 day carbonation?
This is a new process for me, so what kind of timing should I use from finished conditioning, Kegging, carbonating, cooling, driving, and finally serving?
I apologize if my questions seem a bit silly, but Its all new to me.
Thanks for the help!
