Default Time in a bottle

Not a bad situation entirely, but I am running out of room in my fridge.
What if anything, happens to home brew if I take it out for a while and refrigerate later for the second time? Are there any styles that I should NOT do this with? I can only drink so fast...

If you need some help making room, I'm sure you'll find some thirsty volunteers here. Count me in!

Time in a bottle? Good song by Jim Croce that we had a soloist play at our wedding 36 years ago! Ok,interesting tidbits aside,I don't think it hurts it myself. I've fridge beers for a few days or longer that I took out to label,package & send to friends or family. They tasted fine to them,other than sometimes the carbonation being lacking. but that's a seperate issue.

keep them in the dark and they should be OK

higher gravities do better with aging. IPAs don't

I for one would also like to be in if we are gonna just drink your fridge into having more room!!! If that's not a viable option, I do not think there is any real harm to pulling the bottles for a short time. I have bottles that are ageing that have not ever seen the cool air of the fridge, and they drink wonderfully when I do chill them.

+1 on leaving lighter, hoppier beers in, darker, heavier beers might benefit from higher temps, as long as they don't get "hot."

Excess beer can be handled here!

My guess is that any reasonable temperature would be ok, but stay away from sunlight and temps above 90.

Wow. I have never run out of space for beer. Bologna, cheese, ham, turkey, bacon, etc. can all be moved to the freezer until you need to eat them. Prioritize!

I can get a good supply of Styrofoam-lined shipping boxes which is where I store all my brews. In my basement for carbonation/conditioning, then out in my garage for storage. They stay cool enough out there that I don't need refrigeration except for July and August. Lucky, I guess.....

I like the styrofoam idea...really adds to temp stability.
