So, I still have about 10 pint bottles of my Christmas Celebration ale. I intentionally kept them so that I could age them until next year's holiday season. It is a biggish beer at 7% ABV - not a lot of hops, but spiced up with some Ginger, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, and Sweet Orange Peel.
Anyway, I bottle conditioned it in my basement at around 60-65 degrees or so. Now that it is good and conditioned - tastes great, btw - what is the best way to condition this for such a long time?
Is 60-65 degrees in the basement ok? Would cold storage in my beer fridge be better? I have plenty of room in my fridge to store it . . . so what is the best practice in order to ensure that the beer ages well, considering it may be 10-11 months before I crack another?
