I was just reading about beer cellars. Does anyone have one? I am now thinking of making one in the back yard.

Sort of...

I have a relatively large fermentation closet that I can maintain at temperatures ranging from 40 to 75 degrees F (or higher...but who would do that?). When I don't have a batch actively fermenting, I store my kegs in it at appropriate temperatures for the style(s) they contain. Works great! See "Brew Closet" in my signature.

I've seen it before, but this is me green with envy. Can I have your house?

I read your thread a little earlyer and I have also wanted to build a underground celler! I think this would be a "cool" way of controling your brew in the summer...and winter! I did a little yahooing and found this site....I think it might help if you intend to build one!

Someday I will build one!

Does a basement count? Works well for me.

I'd love to have one, but most of the year it would be full of water, unless I had multiple drainage barriers. Ditto for a basement.
