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.
as organized as I get
Needless to say the wife doesn't make it down here very much, one bonus of having a creepy cellar.
I got the same situation for mine and I love it!
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.
Here's a pretty recent shot (though I've added a few bottles since).
And here's what's in it http://www.beercellar.me/cellar/josh
My buddy Mick came by for some beers and took a few cool shots with his Canon fish eye. More here:
Where did you get your wine rack?
Either Amazon or BB&B. I love it because it expands to add more and secures to the wall.
Whoops, first pic didn't come through:
After look at ALL your cellar pics I can easily say this is the most beautiful cellar I have ever seen. Very much wish I could share a beer with you right now!
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.
I have most of my large format bottles up here. Organized thusly: Stouts>Barleywines>Belgians>Sours
I'm going to start building racks for them so it looks "fancier"
smart idea dude
I like using milk crates, they hold 16 bombers perfectly, but the bombers are too tall to be able to stack crates
Moved north for the winter from:
All the goodness in transit
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.
5 GI coffee
4 cherry rye (had 5 but brother wanted to Drink wen for helping me
1 rasp truffle
6 CW Bbs
8 CW Peruvian morning
These are just the nuts and bolts to this cellar. Have so many great beers to chose from. If I ever make a dent in this it'll be time to reload for 13-14 releases!
Hats off to you, sir. I want to visit you and just lay on the floor. Those Blushing Monks made me weep.
What year Dark Lord is that on the bottom shelf?
