Have a honey cream ale to keg tomorrow and have had my sanitized keg stored in the kegerator for a week or 2.
Should I pull it out of there and allow to warm to room temp for racking or rack straight to cold keg?

I did search but found not the info I sought

TIA

Rack right into the cold keg. No worries.

A cold keg will help keep the foam down.

I've never tried it, but it will probably work great. Let us know, I might try that.

I never had much foaming problems while racking from a fermenter to a keg...
