Default Lagering

I have made a lager and understand the process. My question is, in the final lagering stage after the d-rest, is it possible to lager the beer in a keg?

Yes, you can do your lagering in a keg. I do it that way all the time.

Of course, perfect lagering vessel. You can purge the Oxygen and lager for as long as you want. I plan on doing this again in a few weeks myself.
