I am getting ready to start kegging and I just had a 20lb co2 tank refilled. I put it in my garage. I live in Arizona and it is 107 today. Should I move it in the house?

I am thinking it should be fine as long as it isn't sitting in the sun, but the hot car sticky has me worried.

keep it in the kegerator if you have room. if not, fill a 5 gallon bucket of water and put the tank in that.

I wouldn't leave it in your car... but it should be OK today. I have a couple of old tanks that have been in my Arizona garage for years.

It should be ok at 107 F or less. If you're worried, put it in a closet or the laundry room inside the house.

I just found this thread:

Looks like I shouldn't worry.
