Default Increasing freezer temp from 40 to 45F

I have a keg and some bottles currently in my freezer, the temp is 40F. I need to add some grain I am germinating but the grain needs to be kept at 45F. Any problems for my keg or bottles by increasing the temp 5 degrees?

No problems, just your beer is 5 degrees warmer.

Only problem I can think of is you might like the flavor of your beer more at 45 degrees and drink it up quicker than you would have otherwise leading to.

+1 your beer will probably taste better. Sucks when that happens.

I keep my chest freezer at 45, I think it's just about the perfect temp.
