In digest #921 Kevin asks about keeping beer in unrefridgerated kegs. I've been doing
this for about a year now. The beer keeps well at 65F but its character will
continue to change. Keeping the beer at 50-55F slows down the maturation process.
Also if you bottle from the keg and then chill the bottled beer it tends to be flat,
since the carbonation level in the warm keg will be much lower than that of the
chilled bottle temp. Apart from these minor problems you shouldn't have any problems.
The Hunter Air Stat is definitely the way to go. I've bought the Air Stat I just
haven't gotten 'round to finding a refridgerator. I just can't wait to carry it up
the stairs:-)

Cheers,
John
