    Just built some new shelves. Pissed off the neighbors by anchoring it to the floor joists. Haters, man.

    The entire collection, mid-move:

    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?

    Very nice!

    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.

    Cheers!

    Nothing much when compared to most here, but I spent most of my day off re-arranging my cellar. Never a waste.

    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.

    Needless to say the wife doesn't make it down here very much, one bonus of having a creepy cellar.

    I'm using a Breezaire spec'd to cool 240 cu ft. More than twice the actual size of my cellar. Didnt want to work it too hard. About an $800 unit shipped.

    Either Amazon or BB&B. I love it because it expands to add more and secures to the wall.

    I'm sick of all these "good looking" cellars! Here's my storage closet (cellar). It's not much, but it keeps a steady 55-60* year round. These are some old pics. The good stuff is hiding. Time to play Eye-Spy!

    I store all my ~12oz bottles in Banker's Boxes and usually try to keep them organized. The left box is for 1 year storage. The right box is for 2+ years.
    [​IMG]
    I have most of my large format bottles up here. Organized thusly: Stouts>Barleywines>Belgians>Sours
    [​IMG]

    I'm going to start building racks for them so it looks "fancier"

    I like using milk crates, they hold 16 bombers perfectly, but the bombers are too tall to be able to stack crates :(

    Arrival north. Surprisingly (to me at least) the fridge can reach 50 degrees, may leave some long agers there permanently:

    Got a new cellar from my friend who doesn't use the cooler anymore. Has three racks that fits 42 beers in each rack plus the bottom is for bombers. Also have a 400
    Beer sliding glass door fridge similar to this one that holds my everyday beers. I picked this one up
    Just for cellaring.
