Default Brewed too much beer

Short question: can I carbonate and store keg unrefridgerated?

We brewed 5 beers for a competition and failed to realize we can only have 3 kegs on tap. Can we carb up 2 and save them outside the kegerator for when we bottle? We would have to bring down to chill temp to bottle. I was thinking of carbing the cornys and storing them in the basement until we need them to bottle.

You can prime and carb them outside the fridge, fo sho...but I would think bottling at that point would be tough. You could always hook them up to some gas later and serve after carbed. I do this as often as possible actually rather than force carbing.

Well we are bottle from keg with the beer gun. We have another co2 tank and I think we are going to use a old fridge to do the trick. Problem solved. We need to make a keezer so this doesn't happen

there is no problem with storing a carbonated keg (or uncarbonated for that matter) at room temperature for a while.

does a bottle of commercial beer go bad if you leave it out on the counter, unopened?

There's no such thing as brewing too much beer.

True!! Carbing then keeping at cellar temp would be fine. Using a beer gun or this..

would be ideal to fill the bottles.

I usually brew 7.5 gal batches and keg 3 2.5 corneys. One goes in the fridge and I put about 20 psi on the other two and store in my fermenting area under the stairs (it's about 5 degrees cooler than the rest of the house) until ready to put in the fridge and carb. Sometimes they'll store for months.
