I think starting i'd leave it be and wait a bit before I ended up doing a full conversion to a keezer with collar. It would most likely be in my basement utility room, so well air conditioned.

I imagine that this is sort of a "personal preference" with a hint of "budget" thrown in, but I've been homebrewing for about two years now and I'm looking to make the jump into Kegging my beer. The...
