Default serving 4 kegs with 2 co2 tanks (fridge holds 2 cornies)

so i've always been brewing 10 gallon batches, but I've always just used my twin tap kegerator for each 5 gallon corny. i would drink and enjoy. no problem.

well, now I have 2 cornies carbonating a pale ale. i am brewing a 10 gallon batch of something else and would like to serve all 4 cornies at a bbq. can i just finish carbonating these 2 cornies, remove from kegerator and store in fridge, then carbonate next 2 cornies and serve at bbq and retap 2 cornies in storage on bbq day? does that make sense?

so i can disconnect it after it carbonates it and store it (granted there are no leaks in the cornies)? and then reconnect it when i'm ready to serve.

Sure, you can do that. If it's carbed, it's just like being in a big bottle at that point. And like you said, make sure there are no leaks on that corny.

make sure you don't agitate the replacement kegs too much on BBQ day or you will end up with cloudy/yeasty beer for the second half.
