Well, I don't mind paying full price for a new freezer to convert, in fact thats what I would prefer. The problem is that I am switching jobs next week and I will be losing ~$500 because my current job is mostly tips and I dont get paid til the second week of my new job. How long can I leave beer in a keg without chilling it? I know the beer has to carb for a few weeks, which might be enough time to buy the freezer and get it modified. But in case I need more time, will there be any harm?
