    Hi guys I'm very new to cellaring, home brewing, etc. I was looking for an answer but couldn't find it anywhere. Can I take refrigerated beer and cellar it. Will temp flux mess with flavor, quality, etc? I'm thinking it won't be a big deal but I wanted to ask guys with more experience. Thanks in advance.

    It's fine.

    We need to sticky this or something, it gets asked so damn often.

    You're right, everything will be fine. Keep 'em in the fridge or toss them back in if you want to slow the aging process.

    A couple hours is all it takes for a beer to get to room temp or cellar temp. Cellarable beers will not change in a couple hours. Just move them to your cellar. No problems at all.
