Once in THE SUB®, cooling down a TORP® takes 10 to 16 hours (depending on starting temperature of the TORP®). When your beer is chilled to the right temperature, then the light on the front of THE SUB® will turn green. To speed up the process, ensure your TORP® is fully chilled before inserting it into the SUB®. Set your fridge at the lowest temperature and store the TORP® on the lowest shelf (this is the coldest area) for 6 to 10 hours, or until the cold indicator on the TORP® turns dark blue.
The temperature of the TORP® depends on the temperature in the fridge and the time the TORP® has been in the appliance. If the temperature of the room is above 30 °C and the TORP® has not been pre-chilled, it can happen that the light does not turn green. The temperature of the beer, in this case, is within 2 – 6 °C and still cooling. As long as the TORP® has been in THE SUB® for a couple of hours, it is not a problem that the light is still red.
