Default Cold conditioning question.

So, once the beer is carbed up for two or three weeks then cold conditioned for a week, can you take it out of the fridge for basement storage at say 63-64F, then rechill at will or does it have to go though another week of cold conditioning to be "right" again if it warms up?

You can take kegs in and out of your keggerator with no ill effects or extra time needed to re-condition.

You don't really need any more time to "condition" per se. You will need time for the CO2 to adjust to the colder temp and be reabsorbed by the beer. 48 hours seems to work fine for me for bottles.

Agree with billl. That was what I was going to say. Also, some people may read this and be confused by cold crash vs. cold condition. The necessary conditioning should have already been accomplished in the weeks following fermentation / prior to bottling. Introducing your room temperature bottles to the refrigerator shouldn't take much time at all to be drink-ready. A day perhaps.
