One day, hopefully before next summer, I will have a set up where I can keep my kegs cool but I am just starting out and for now here is my plan. For the winter I am going to be keeping my kegs in a cool spot in my home but not at ideal drinking temperatures. I have some Grolsch style one liter bottles that I plan to fill, from the carbbed kegs, and store the bottles in my fridge. I saw a great DIY bottle filler from BobbyFromNJ on youtube that I will be making.
I am not filling the bottles to store long term, just chilling enough of them to drink leisurely or to take a couple over to a friends.
I am only making ales or big stouts right now so cold storage doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But I am new to all of this so it would be dumb not to ask. If there are any red flags that you see or precautions that I may take though please let me know.
And, just for the record, I know this is not the ideal scenario. I do home remodel for a living and I put a couple used refrigerators on craigslist every year. It is just a matter of time before I get another and this time make something to keep my kegs cool and then throw the outrageous parties that last until 4.
