    Getting a little big......moving recently was a bit of a pain, haha, but still worth it. In the basement which hovers right around 50-55 degrees in the winter......and a bit warmer in the heat of the summer.

    +/- 500 bottles

    Can't tell if I'm just being lazy or if I'm a little to protective of my beers. Haha (Almost everything should be moving to the crawl space soon)

    For good measure, here's the complete cellar shot, along with a number of bottles I've added recently (that extra shelf has already come in handy ^_^).

    ^ Haha Thanks everyone for sticking up for my POS beers. It's going to suck eventually drinking all that beer. :slight_frown:

    I too store my cantillon on their sides. However, is it just me or does it seem like these are stored at an angle that would make the sediment toward the neck of the bottle?

    I just started my collection right before I left Belgium. I have more beer than this now but it shows my setup. I preferred to go the route of having my beer temp controlled.[​IMG]

    It's certainly a valid concerned but it has to be fairly large slope to overcome the angle of the bottle below the neck.

    Just spent two hours unboxing, inventorying, and sorting my collection. To steal a phrase from someone very early in this thread, I upgraded from the "tornado aftermath organization method" to something a little easier to find my way in. By which I mean find the bottle I want.

    Oh, and there's the "ancillary storage" in my kitchen... Pay no attention to the milk and wine, I had houseguests.

    Where did you get those shelves in the foreground? Or did you build them?

    Here's my starter cellar. Moved into my new house this past weekend and a friend donated his old fridge. I just removed the bottom drawers and the light bulb. It's set right around 45 degrees. I may have bigger plans in the future but this is perfect for now!

    Maybe it's just me, but I would be a bit worried about this shelving unit. Especially the top couple shelves appear to be a bit bowed.

    stupid question, do you guys label your beers with the dates so you don't have to go searching all over the bottles for the dates?
     
  27. pkassel

    pkassel Initiate (0) Jul 12, 2013 Iowa

    I put a differnent vintage in each row, but once I run out of room I probably will label them.

    As far as this thread goes, holy shit some of you guys have some awesome setups. I'd take a picture of mine but I only started it last weekend and it contains 2 Founders breakfast stout and 2 BCBS lol.

    I'm so damn envious of how clean some of your cellars are. My house was built in 1894 and the "basement" is a glorified root cellar. A fresh 6er stays clean down there for about 10 minutes.

    On the plus side, whenever I pull a bottle out, I fell like I'm getting a vintage wine out of the cellar of some European castle, coated with dust and cobwebs :wink:
