    My boxes are in the cabinets below. Dad's got his wine above. Super stoked he felt the need to build a temperature controlled room into the garage building. That didn't help my purchasing habits at all though...

    Don't mind me. I'm kinda jealous. I just throw stuff into my chest freezer, closet, and mini-fridge without organizing it. I really need to get around to sorting it out...And maybe throwing a "cellar party" to empty it.

    Renting my place, so some Ikea shelves in the basement is the best I can do. Just went through and rearranged some stuff. Got rid of some of the 2010 IPAs that I tossed down there when I moved.

    I opened up my 08, 10, 11 on Thanksgiving and it was a good time. The 08 was over the hill but the 10 was amazing and still have a few more years left before it starts turning.

    Not really a cellar, as I live in Florida, but here is my storage fridge.

    Usually the light is off in the fridge, but had to turn it on for the pic.

    I bought an apartment recently and just finished setting up my beer cellar in the temp controlled basement storage unit.


    [​IMG]


    Without having to use turn on the heating/cooling unit in the storage space, the temp has so far stayed right around 50°F (+/- 2°). Not sure if that'll go up in the summertime as the basement felt the same temp when I first saw the apartment in June. The humidity has been wavering between 50-58%. I wish it was a bit higher, but I'm not gonna stress too much about 50%. If that starts to drop more though I'll probably do something to up the humidity, but for now I'm quite happy with the setup...it's much better than the boxes stored in the back of room temp closets method that I had been using beforehand.

    Ug I am so jealous. Makes my 200 beer fridge seem paltry in comparison, not to mentioned crammed and unorganized.

    I wish I had a constantly cool basement to build such an awesome cellar.

    im a fan of this method as well. its fun to open a box and find something you completely forgot you had, haha.

    i keep em in boxes on shelves. being alive for the 89 earthquake, a lot of these pretty cellars would be puddles and shards.

    It keeps growing, hopefully I can get it under control one of these years....although I have been saying that for a while.

    Most of my bottles are in cases. I then put a big marker letter on the side and that's what I reference in my inventory spreadsheet (the fact that I'm up to 'Z' tells me I have too many goddamn bottles).

    For those doing this, I would highly recommend reinforcing the bottom of the boxes with tape. The glue (and cardboard to an extent) start breaking down in a basement/cellar environment. It's exacerbated by regularly lifting a full box when digging for beers.

    Putting a reference marker on the box is a great idea, thank you. I have so many damn boxes and I can never remember where things are. This will help.

    What's so funny about that? :wink:

    Seriously though, there's another larger fridge with food just 12 feet to the right.
