Default cold garage = flat beer?

Stored freshly bottled beer in the garage, cold nights, daytime temps in the 60's... issues with bottle carbing?

If so, how can I now get the bottles to carb?

Those cool temps did nothing to your yeast except make them sluggish. Put the bottles somewhere as close to 70F as you can for 3 weeks and they should carb up fine. Depending on how long they have been stored you might want to resuspend the yeast. Just turn each bottle over gently 2 or 3 times.

Thank you for the sound advice and quick response Michael.

I'd rather not drink flat beer if I can avoid it... then again that is a fine excuse to back away from the holiday handouts... more for me

Decisions!


Thanks again.

Yup, warm up your bottles and they will carb in a few weeks!
