Default Bottle temp. storage

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.

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.
