Until you are ready to use your Blade keg, it is important to keep it stored in a cool, dark place. Preferably below 20⁰C.
Storing your Blade kegs at 20°C or lower can have a significant impact on the CO2 levels in your beer and its overall shelf life? The temperature is key to managing carbonation and preserving the beer characteristics.
High temperatures can lead beer to lose CO2, causing it to taste flat. A cooler temperature helps keep the beer’s carbonation level up by reducing CO2 escape rate. And as a result, each pour stays bubble and tasty!
Additionally, lower temperatures slow down chemical reactions that can cause off-flavours. It keeps the beer fresh, crisp, and true to its intended taste for longer. Keeping the Blade operational at all times also helps ensuring the quality and consistency of the beer.
When you store your kegs at 20°C or below, you’re essentially preserving the beer’s CO2 content, creating a better drinking experience! So keep it cool, not just for freshness, but for the taste and quality 🍻
When you are ready to enjoy it, don’t forget to pre-cool the keg in the fridge (around 4⁰C) for at least 24 hours before it goes into your blade machine.
