More like save beer, drink water.
anyone have any cellaring advice for someone who lives in Los Angeles?
No basement and warm weather not good as you know. If I didnt have the cellar space that I do, I'd find an old refrigerator and arrange the shelving and temp settings accordingly.
nice. that would be a good use of the extra DFH tap handle I have sitting around!
Nice. But you might want to not sit too long that Olympic interior semi-gloss. It falls off pretty fast.
True but thought I would risk it as it is a nice bolster for the top shelf, but I do agree it is way past its prime and is likely a drain pour.
I posted some photos on another forum recently and got some requests to post more. Thought it would be more fitting on this forum.
Ive heard voodoo daughnut and creme brulee really come into their own after a couple years
Couldnt have wiped it down with a rag before posting a pic? lol
Those are stains. Its an old fridge
gotcha, well the handle is nice man, those arent cheap
Yeah the Voodoo is supposed to get better after a year or two. The smoke dies off and it gets sweeter. That is what I've heard.
Easily one of the coolest cellar I have seen. Did you convert and old closet into that?
Close. It's a 4th room originally built to be either a bedroom or a den. It has been a den for the entire 25 years since the house was built. I converted it into my beer/wine cellar & tasting room last August. The portion of the room that would've originally been a closet was framed in, insulated, wired, Breezaire cellar cooling unit, LED lighting, cedar lined, etc... all new construction. I actually have an album of photos showing construction from start to finish if interested. Thanks for the note.
I'm interested in seeing the album!
Just built some new shelves. Pissed off the neighbors by anchoring it to the floor joists. Haters, man.
The entire collection, mid-move:
Shelf installed and organized:
My non-traditional alcohol problem continues to worsen.
Do not leave them on open shelves, one small quake and your going to be real sad.
What temp do you keep the room at? Do you have any condensation issues?
Thanks. I keep the cellar at about 58f. I was told by the cooling unit manufacturer that I shouldn't have condensation issues unless the temp outside the cellar exceeds the inside temp by 25 degrees or more. The room outside the cellar gets no direct sunlight so keeping it in the 70s or less not a big challenge. This winter I kept the window cracked and the room stayed very cool and cellar cooling unit ran infrequently.
Looks awesome. If I could add one thing, some sort of barrier to keep them from falling of the shelves in case of an earthquake.
You sir, are a Sir. Bravo.
We need more pics in here. I know theres people with rediculous cellars and home bars on this forum so why not share em!!
i concur. he is a Sir
for you guys who installed temp control, any recommendations on brands? how did you go about that?
Nothing much when compared to most here, but I spent most of my day off re-arranging my cellar. Never a waste.
Where is your De Cam Framboise? In your tummy?
Yup I'll be getting some more soon though!
Let me know man. I'll give you everything.
I keep almost all my beers in boxes for fear of the earthquake possibility here in Northern California. Unfortunately, I've started putting beer loosely on top of the boxes as I've run out of space.
How many do you need and could you specify everything?
Slightly updated portion of the cellar...finally have my CC
We should rename this thread to "have you SEEN my cellar?!"
Here's my mess.
Holy Shit man....nice!
Illinois is a long way from Oregon. Otherwise I might try to hang out with you.
