If you put hot brewed coffee into a keg, its flavor profile will change as it cools and in the following days. Cold brew coffee maintains a consistent flavor profile and can be kept in a keg for extended periods of time.
There's no oxygen to cause oxidation when the coffee is kegged, so you can go at least three or four weeks without any appreciable difference in quality.
SHELF LIFE : Storing your cold brew in a keg, refrigerated and under pressure with nitrogen, extends the serving life of your coffee. It will stay fresh for up to three months, although the optimal recommended time to keep and serve is usually two weeks.
