I went to check the thermometer that was in there already (a coil type) and it was reading 26F... 0_o. I threw another glass/alcohol type sitting on the primary bucket lid a few hours ago, its reading 42-44F (much higher than I was expecting). I just moved it to the shelf above the fermenter to see if maybe the fermenter is still a bit warm?
I can only crank the controls in the spare fridge up a bit more until I max it, but it's used for food and other things also so I'd rather not play with it much if I don't need to.
I plan to either swirl cold water in the keg, or stick it in the fridge for a few hours before I rack it over anyways. Will it help to chill the gas too or should that stay warm, does it matter?
