I have the same setup but also use a little dehumifier inside each of my freezers just to keep the humidity under control. Even with that, my Parabola boxes are a little soft.
Herp derp derp. I didn't know Lost Abbey had other beers with blue labels. My bad.
Thanks, I just organized my FW boxes and they felt normal. It can get pretty humid here so I should probably err on the side of caution and take some preventative measures.
Been collecting for a while now but finally got my cellar set up!
I used a Frigidaire Frostfree Upright Freezer with the Johnston controls unit highly recommended on this forum.
I have it packed in there 4 rows deep so if anyone's curious as to what's back there here's a list
moved everything into a fridge that is being unused. It's kind of a mess, but I know what I have in there and where it's at. Pretty much everything on top is a solo, with bottles on the bottom being multiples.
Nice! Similar here, got a new fridge and put the old ugly one in the garage. Now I need a temp controller and a bunch of beer/brewery stickers to make it not as ugly.
Dude, I hope those restraining bars don't give out.
Those are in real good. my other freezer needed reinforcement.
And to think I used to not like LA because of a bad flat experience with CdT years ago
A couple years ago, I was probably up to 600-700 bottles. Then, I moved back to SC. I have been trying to drink down the cellar, and get to a more manageable size. Now, I am going for quality over quantity. I only age really great beers or stuff I know will hold up.
I took everyones advice and bought real shelving instead of the old bookcase. I know it isn't much but you have to start somewhere!!
Now you have room for way more beer!!! Time for a shopping trip!
Or an acid trip based on that wallpaper.
Where do you live and when are you not home?? I have some raiding to do of those Cable Cars... Just kidding, I swear.
My 2012 bottle of CvT was flat as well when I opened it last week:/
Just starting my own collection so don't laugh.
The middle and bottom are mostly just excess short storage also 750ml bombers are hidden away somewhere else since they wont fit.
Finally got some shelves because I was tired of digging through boxes with outdated content notes. Also preparing for HS next year. Going to be fun "beer shopping" at my own place any given weekend.
Here we go:
BA shelf 1:
BA shelf 2:
Do you by chance live in Calabasas?
Nope im in San Diego. Calabasas wouldnt be to bad though haha
Ahh, I lived in Calabasas and I swear we had the exact same cabinets, and that was where I started my beer cellar years ago
...not the most organized setup, but it'll do.
Rebuilt the cellar today, as the old bookshelf one was looking dangerously saggy under the weight of all the booze. Obviously need more beer to fill the new empty shelf!
Added wire lining each of the shelves today, too--I live in the Bay Area, so it helps my piece of mind to have that extra bit of protection in case an earthquake decides to shake the beer about.
*to each, *peace of mind.. gogo typos!
One more update: added some netting, secured with zip ties, to the top three levels to prevent any bottles from rolling off (after first toppling to their sides) in a sustained quake. Probably overkill, but if ever I lose any beers to an earthquake, I'll be one sad panda, whereas I'll feel happy if I don't lose any in whatever quakes some next
Also managed to grab some extra Founder Breakfast Stout in Austin this weekend (which we never see here in the Bay Area); huzzah!
Here's what's in there: http://www.beercellar.me/cellar/josh
My life is clearly not as fulfilled as a lot of you. some nice collections...some day
Just started cellaring in Februrary…
definitely new to the cellaring scene, started my cellar (read: closet) in September
Just went through this whole tread & I must say, all of this stuff looked incredible you guys are doing lovely stuff.
Makes me ashamed with my beer cellar being a kitchen cabinet with 10 beers for aging & 10 beers for ticking.
Don't be ashamed. We all started somewhere. I went from a couple of shelves in the garage fridge to a bedroom closet with a fan to what I have today. I'm already considering improvements. Stop the madness she says
Yeah, might change houses soon. Living in Belgium, I can pick up most lambic’s reasonably, that is the stuff I should be aging mostly. Cantillon geuze is 5€ per 75 & ages incredibly, should pickup some. Probably should keep away from having too much as some guys with celllars say
Pretty embarrassing and unorganized, but it's my humble closet. Some goodies tucked away in there you cannot see. Seven full cases to the right as well you can somewhat see (the stave boxes/BFM). Not all to be aged, many just waiting to be drank.
Lucky at least to have a second closet in my apartment in a room with it's own thermostat unit.
Can just say, this is hands down one of my top 3 favorite threads on this entire site. I always look with a slight hint of jealousy, but love every second of it. My "cellar" went from 40-50 bottles, to roughly 20 bottles currently... and you guys always give me that feeling that I need to go buy more bottles! Thank you, but don't tell my wife haha
My beer in my new-ish cellar.
Just getting SERIOUS, though I've been collecting about a year
Which one is these is not like the other? For my brother.
We cant see by the picture but dont forget to anchor your whole rack to the wall!! If the rack tips ....
this is my two fridges..the taller more slender one is my cellar temp cellar i keep at 60 degrees...the other one has ipas and growlers that i want to keep as cold as possible. yesterday i did inventory of my beer that i can put in my cellarable cooler on cellarhq and it said 245 bottles but i probably am forgetting 10-15...
i am goign to start to dwindle my cellar down and save up some money. i have been on a huge heater of beer buying the past 2 months. the only beer i am going to try and get from now until the first of the year is goign to be BCBS and coffee and its variants so maybe i'll hve 275 total by end of year. then its time to drink some of these bad boys!
Thanks for the thought I've got three anchors to the wall in there across the top, so all should be safe.
Old pic of my cellar cabinet, but it's with a real camera so quality is decent.
Here's a more recent pic, but it's from a cellphone so not that great.
