Default First keg

I kegged my first batch of beer this week and it turned out great. I am going to watch the sales for a freezer to convert. I live in the midwest, central illinois. My garage is well insulated to it never drops below 43 degrees in the winter, but in the summer my door is open alot and it will sometime be over 90 for several days in the summer. Will it be ok to put the keezer in the garage for should i put it in the basement which is a constant temp?

It will be ok, but it will use more electricity in the summer if you keep it in the garage.

I see you are drinking Black Dog Ale clone, I just order the extract kit of that. Do you like it?

Garage is fine - I actually just went and looked and over the last 130 hours my 6 keg freezer has used 2.6 kWH, so its really not even using much power
