I age carbonated kegs routinely. Brew up a batch, when it's done fermenting put it into a spare
keg, carbonate at room temperature, then let it sit until I'm ready for it. I've had cider sit

Commercial beer usually comes carbed up around 2.6-2.7 volumes of CO2. If your keg is at 40
degrees, that means ...
