Im brewing my first lager... Fridge is at 48 degrees now. When I bottle can I keep the bottles at room temperature or should I keep the bottles in the fridge at 48 deg? I real stoked for this batch and really dont wanna mess it up

After you lager in the carboy, you bottle the beer and allow it to carb up at room temperature.

I ferment at 48-50 degrees in primary, and then rack to the carboy when it's done and slowly lower the temp (5 degrees per day) until I'm at 34 degrees. I leave it at 34 degrees for about 4-6 weeks or so before I bottle.
