Looks like a 2011.
Maybe it's just the resolution or the black background, but looks like a gold waxed swingtop from the old days to me.
Looks like Yellow Wax from 2011 to me.
I've finally gotten these guys onto a decent shelf!
The Thermometer is reading about 57F
Still adding some finishing touches to the room but the Lambic is all there
do you even lambic bro?
I will trade every non-sour in my cellar for this.
edit: Do you have some design plans for this? Would love to build something like this down the road.
FUCKING. GORGEOUS. Well done sir.
I thought it looked swingtop-ish as well
What's with the tommy budjanec boards above the fridge? Funny, I used to (well, I still do a couple times a week) skate...and I remember him fro the duffs wonder years video...and I think some random footage in some early progression videos too. I used to fill my mind with worthless skate knowledge (and I guess some of its still there) but now I fill it with worthless beer knowledge
Not much right now, drank a lot of it and there's more in the fridge. Gonna have to find another spot soon though, this one is a bit small.
Tommy is one of my best friends. We moved out to CA together. He had that board signed for me by Jerome Bettis! I still skate also, but just on the weekends with my kids... now I surf and collect craft beer.
That's really funny you noticed. Cheers
No plans. The racks are modular kit form from wineracksamerica.com ... you have to assemble yourself, but are easy enough to do. I had to make minor modifications to get them in the room (ceiling is an inch too short). Total capacity of the racks shown in the photo is 440 bottles.
The nice thing about the ones from wineracksamerica, is that they'll hold 375ml bottles. With some of the other racks out there (that even look similar), the 375mls will slip through the positioning posts. My Armand'4s are too big, but they have racks for magnums that I'll need to get.
Is that the Kenmore freezerless refrigerator?
Yes it is.
Just picked up a freezerless fridge and loaded it up. Only disappointing thing about it is there is not a lot of room for 750s, but ill make due.
This is my two week old cellar.
Your picture link is broken.
Which Avery beer did you stockpile in the pic? Can't read it.
With a little zooming it looks like some Odio Equum & Oud Floris.
Yeah it's a mix of Floris and Equum, heavy on the Equum. Love that stuff.
i literally just have mine sitting in a cold cellar.. i live in pittsburgh, so the temp fluxes from 10 degrees to 90 degrees. should i be worried? sidenote:this is the one shelf http://instagram.com/p/YVRuIqqUOv/
The outside temp is irrelevant, what's the temp in your cellar doing?
I am also in Pittsburgh and my cellar doesnt have a cold storage room and stays around 65. Not ideal, but you may be getting better temps if you have an old house with a cold storage room. By a cheap thermometer and keep track of the temps, especially with summer coming up. If it gets too warm, may be worth getting a used fridge and some temp control.
it stays relatively cool, but i'll have to get a thermometer
Have you had Sofie with age on it? I had a bottle with a few years on it and found fresh to be much better. Then again it wasn't stored in the most primo conditions.
It puts the Joe Dirt in the hole.
Not as impressive as some of these other ones but here's where I've gotten so far. Started on this collection about 8 months ago.
I have the same fridge. I lowered the bottom shelf so only 12 oz. could fit on the bottom after removing that plastic thing. That allowed the 2 shelves up for that for 750s and 22 oz on the top shelf. Do you notice the bowing of the shelves? Mine is stuffed full and I'm worried about a shelf breaking.
I definitely prefer Sofie with a couple years on it, but cellaring conditions always matter.
Overview of the "cellar", the girlfriend bought me the fridge for my birthday last year, she's a keeper!
Close up of the box #1
Close up of box #2, not all of these are mine, waiting for some friends to pick up their share.
Close up of box #3....where I keep the good stuff......
What type if fridge is that? Really like it.
Things have got a little bit more cramped since I added 3 more of the speidels.
Pretty sure it's this one. It's worked well for me so far.
Edit: helps if I attach the link huh? http://www.lowes.com/pd_326324-47224-LFBC46F5LS_4294735542__
I did notice the bowing, but seems to be holding strong so far. The bars that actually give the support from the holes seems to be staying straight, so I think they are good.
I may have a different model or something, I measure it up again today and I can't get the 750s in any other shelf but the very bottom or the very top. It ok though I prefer 12oz formats more anyway.
Those wooden crates are awesome.
