Thanks for the that answer. While waiting the 2 to 3 weeks in the keg (untapped), should it be in the kegerator at fridge temp or at fermentation temp?

Basically, I am thjinking tht aging it will help improve the beer.

it should be at fridge/kegerator temp since your pressure is set for that temp and the desired CO2 level. It will also help the beer itself.

So, put it in the fridge/kegerator and hook up CO2 pressure the same day I rack it from the 2ndary fermenter?

Sorry to ask again, but the answers seemed a little vague. =)

Thanks much!

You can either rack then refridgerate or stick the carboy in the fridge for a few days first. Sticking the carboy in the fridge before racking with help settle out any yeast, etc. that is still in suspension, thus not in your keg.

Best bet is to put the keg into the fridge a day prior so it can chill down; the CO2 will aborb better from the start that way, saving maybe a day on your carbonation time.
