Possibly (probably) a stupid question. I have an All Rounder, which I really like. Usually I've pressure transferred directly to the keg and then conditioned using corn sugar in the keg. I only pressure ferment at about 2 or 3 PSI. I used to do higher but my beers didn't taste as good. However...I was wondering...what if I cooled my finished beer in my All Rounder and conditioned it before transferring to the keg? Would that just be a stupid idea or is it possible? I imagine I'd just make a mess...but was curious.

FYI: I live 2 hours round trip from a CO2 supplier and use Soda Stream CO2 canisters...it is expensive to force carbonate and pressure transfers uses a ton of CO2. Keg conditioning isn't really a problem...but I thought it might save me a little CO2 and make my beer a little cleaner in the keg.

Has anyone tried this?

I keg condition fairly often but not with the fermenter. Only in the keg. I don’t know the max PSI for your all rounder but you need to confirm that or you’ll have a real beer bomb!
Since you already transfer. I’m presuming closed then you can easily keg condition. I usually give it ten to twelve days.
Great carb.

I do exactly what you say, except I put a spunding valve on so its basically already carbonated before cold crash. The all rounders are rated to 30+ psi.
I have a spunding valve too. You prime in the All Rounder?

Yes. I do a closed transfer. It can go to 35 PSI or so. I've fermented and had it up to 20psi, but I usually transfer and then keg condition. I want to see if I can get it conditioned in the fermenter though if I can!
