I am going to brew a couple lagers for a summer visit from some friends. I don't mind brewing and fermenting them and then lagering for 3 months but I don't want them taking up my freezer all summer (the freezer is how I control fermentation temperature.)
If I lager for 3 months in a keg can I remove that keg from the cold and store it without issue? In other words, if I remove it from the cold after lagering will there be any negative effect on the beer?
Brewed in 2014: Rye IPA, Honey Sage Ale, Belgian Golden Strong, California Common, Bavarian Style Lager, Weizen, Coffee Stout, Gruit, Gale Ale, Isle of Skye Golden clone, Oktoberfest, Rauchbier, Alpha Male IPA & Chocolate Pepper Stout.
