The question - I racked both batches into 5 gallon kegs and carbonated at 10psi. Now I'm going to age them in the keg. Can they be aged at Lagering temperatures (38F or so)? Has anyone tried this? Is it good, bad, better, worse, indifferent??? Or should I simply leave the kegs at room temperature (low 70's usually) for the next 6-8 months?
Thanks for the assistance!
It's up to you! Cider ages slower at colder temperatures, but there are some things that happen at a colder temperature like the "smoothing" out of flavors that are good things as well.
You could try one of each, since you have two kegs. See which way you prefer.
