Cold conditioning kegs

TroubleShooting

Carey Lewis asks,
Q

When you cold condition beer in a keg, does it matter whether it is carbonated or not?

 

A
I prefer to cold condition after carbonation, because you can aggressively remove yeast by racking the beer from keg to keg without worrying about having enough yeast in the beer at bottling
