Ok, I got my kegs in, and my co2 canister. I just donít have any lines yet or a regulator. I was wondering if it were ok to go ahead and transfer my lager from the carboy in the fridge to a cooled Corny? Even though it wonít be pressurized till after Christmas? It will go back in the fridge at the same temp...

thanks

Yep - having it in the corny is no different than having it in the secondary.

Yes you can. It will be just a prolonged secondary in a nice metal container. More clearing and conditioning and will be great tasting once you can carbonate it.

Can you do the same thing with an Ale and keep it at room temp?

Yep! I use cornies almost exclusively for clearing. In fact, in most cases the ale goes from fermenter to cornie in the aging chest to kegger. I'm planning on putting my Schwarzbier into a cornie for lagering in the back of the kegger. (I think I can squeeze it in).
