If I move my bottled hard lemonade straight to the frig will that stop fermentation?!

Question: If I move my bottled hard lemonade straight to the frig will that stop fermentation!?
There is some question about how I am going to get some fizz in my batch of hard lemonade without letting it ferment so much that the bottles explode!. I am going to bottle it as soon as it reaches 1!.07 specific gravity!. I started with a 1!.12 reading!. I hope this means I will have alcohol of 5% but it also means there is a potential of another !.07 or so of fermentation!. I intend to use that to carbonate the bottles without priming them!. The question is how long do I leave the bottled product at room tempature!? I have good carbonation right now but am assuming I will lose that during the rest of the process of fermenting and bottling!. also, when I move them to the frig will that then stop the fermenting process and the danger of exploding bottles!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

If you keep the bottles refrigerated until opening, you might get away with it!. Refrigeration won't stop fermentation but it will slow it down!. Almost all physiological processes are slowed by a factor of 2 to 3 each time you drop the temperature 10°C!.

When I answered your last question, I forgot to mention that you could stop fermentation with metabisulfite and then carbonate with capsules or with compressed gas!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
