    It takes time my friend.
    The simple law of thermodynamics says that if the surrounding air is 34 degrees, EVENTUALLY the beer will become the same temperature.
    This is the reason for fans. They keep cold air circulating, which speeds the process.

    I figured it out once, but lost the exact numbers.. a 1/2 barrels should take about 2 or 3 days to reach equilibrium with the surrounding air.

    One really easy way to improve your cooling is to create a long loop of beer line and place it inside your fridge area right below the freezer plate.
    That will super cool the beer that is just about ready to flow through the tap. Also, be sure there is an open air space (for cold air to flow) right up into your tap tower.
    The beer in the line is still under pressure so it shouldn’t go flat….unless you’re a very slow drinker.

    And if it does go flat and you ARE a slow drinker, call up some friends, or better yet, call up some Barplan.com friends and invite them over for a few! Cheers!
