FWIW

Keeping the CO2 Canister outside may have a small benefit by having it warmer.

My kegs and fridge are in an outdoor room at the house and it gets pretty warm. I notice that as the temps rise, so does the pressure in the tank which is kept outside the fridge.

It would seem logical that having a lower temp for storage would by default lower the potential pressure available.

The N20 I run in my car benefits greatly by having the bottle warm for instance.

Just my 2 cents.

Cheers,

The amount of CO2 has nothing to do with what temperature it is at. It doesn't matter if it's at 38 degrees or 75 degrees. 5 pounds of CO2 is 5 pounds of CO2.
