I have my first IPA (pretty simply 5.4%) carbing in my kegerator and have a question about conditioning. Due to scheduling/time difficulties, I had to follow this timeline:
-primary (8 days)
-rack to keg and dry hop in a mesh bag (6 days)
-put the keg in kegerator (1 day)
-attach CO2 and carb (going on right now)
My question is: did going to the fridge/putting it on CO2 so soon mean that the beer didn't get a chance to condition? Will it condition while in the fridge and under pressure? I wanted to get it in the fridge (~44 degrees) to avoid developing any grassy flavors but now I'm concerned that it will take a really long time to condition at these temps
Any thoughts or advice?
