Default Lagering in a keg?

Hey,
Anyone know if lagering in a keg will be an issue?

It was been in the primary for 2 weeks at 40F and 2 weeks in the secondary at 40F.

Cheers

It will not be an issue. I believe that's how most do it here.

2 weeks in the primary at 40*f is very cold, have you taken a gravity reading? I guess it is a lager though, aging beer in a keg is no problem. When your beer is done you can transfer it to another keg which adds to the clarity of the beer, that is not necessary though

hopsalot is right. That is very cold - even for a lager. It will ferment but slowly... I start mine at 46 and have it up to 50 within about 48hrs and then leave it there for 3-4 weeks. Then keg and lager.
