Default secondary lager in keezer?

My german lager is done with the D-rest, and is time for the
real low temps. I can only achieve this in my keezer, and only
have room for cornies. Can I rack this to a keg with some residual
yeast, and let it rest in there for a month or so ....without gas?

If so, do I need to rig an airlock to this, or ?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Karb

Until you rig an airlock just burp it through the vent once a day.

Sure, you could easily do that. Don't rack up any flocculated yeast, though- the idea is to get it OFF of the yeast.

If it's already lagering, it's done fermenting, so you're all set. Let it lager for the allotted time, then carb and serve- all in the same keg.

No need to vent any pressure. Any residual CO2 will just help carbonate the beer.
