Yes.

I have to do the same thing in my loft this time of year..It's in the low 60's. I place the milkcrates that each hold a case of bottles into a goretex sleeping bag. I can stack about four crate in it iirc....

Nope. Ambient air temperature is all that matters. The blanket will help mitigate any temperature swings to a small extent, but...

We are warm blooded animals. Beer is not. Don't think the small amount of yeast will be producing heat that a blanket will hold in.

I actually came up with a decent solution to place the beer in a high cupboard as normally I would have the beer on the floor but its winter and the degree variation from the floor to ceiling can be 10 degrees so at my high cupboard I can get a consitent 70-72 degrees
