Default kegged beer

I am wanting to brew larger batches (form 5 to 10 gal) and interested to know how long a beer will keep in a 5gal keg, in a beer fridge. I want to brew several batches before summer and hopefully not brew again until September.

Thanks

As long as the kegs are clean/sanitized and there is co2 on it, the beer will last for months, if you can keep from drinking it up...............

I keep my kegger around 45F and most ales are good for 4-6 months at that temperature.

Yep, if you have good sanitation and a good seal, it keeps for a long time. we got our 'brewery' from a guy out of a storage locker, which included a corny of strong ale over a year old. and not refered.

a nice bonus!

I think my record is three weeks. It always mysteriously disappears by that time.
