Should you store your newly bottled beer warm or cold? My lastest beers are in the garage and are around 45 degrees. An American stout (1.086 O.G.) and a pale ale (6.0 O.G.). Will it take longer to carbinate at a lower temp?
Keep them around 65F for a couple of weeks to condition (carbonate) and about 50F if you can manage it, to store them long term.
45F seems a bit low for carbonation, I'll try to warm them at least to 60's.
We are only 10,000 years into beer... there are thousands of years left to go!

I generally shoot for closer to 70F for bottle conditioning. I would think garage temps would be too cool for the yeast to perform well.
