Default Lager without Lagering

Hey,

So I'm wrapping up fermentation now on a Munich Helles. Kept it pretty consistently at 50F throughout fermentation via rubbermaid water temp-control type system.

When I rack to keg, I will be able to keep it below 50 but not at a stable "lagering" temp.

I don't think this is a big deal.

What do you think?

You could always lager in the keg in your fridge. Not getting down in the upper 30's or lower won't give you the same beer as true lagering, but it'll still be beer. You could always lager in bottles in your fridge too, if space is an issue.
