I wanted to get a batch ready for labor day, so I purchased some kegging equipment and opted to keg this beer. However, I am driving 5ish hours to a lake, where I plan to keep the keg in a ice bath once I get there. For the transportation:
1.) Should I keep the CO2 tank hooked up (particularly if its carbed to my liking prior to departure)? At what PSI? I realize I will need it once I get there at low PSI to dispense.
2.) I have no way to keep it cold during the ride, other than some ice packs
3.) Is it ok to keep the keg on its side during the ride?
4.) How long should I let it sit once we arrive?
