Default Forced carbonation and storage, need advice!

Hello everyone, We have agreed to brew beer for a relatives wedding. We have little over a year of trial, error, modifications to go before providing 500+ beers for this thing. We want to start force carbonating for the consistancy (we always have a few flat or semi flat when bittle conditioning). The issue comes with the amount of fridge space needed and cost of that many kegs. Can we force in a keg then bottle for storage? if that storage is basemnt temps does that make a bad taste since we are chilling it to carbonate? Is aging and force carbonating an oxy moron since your chilling the yeast out? Can you store in bottles, age, then force carbonate? As you can tell i dont have a clue. please help! Thanks!

It can be done and I don't see any problems with carbonating, bottling and storage. You might want to look into getting a beer gun, as they are designed to do exactly what you plan.

This won't work though:
Can you store in bottles, age, then force carbonate?
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
