Default cold conditioning bottles

well, in regards to this thread --> http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/cold...0/#post1042185 I went ahead and pulled one out of my little fridge.
my All-Day-IPA had been sitting there for 8 days @ 34*. i also pulled one out of the cupboard @ ~70* and put it in the freezer.
unfortunately, no pics


the freezer to glass beer was first.
it was hella hazy, full of floaties (hops), and overall, did not taste very good. i was sad.

i opened the beer that had been chilled for 8 days, and OFMG!
it was clear.
the hop aroma was far stronger
the bitter was balanced.

if i had not labled the sixers they were in, i could not say this was MY beer. i would actually pay money for THIS beer. tastes like a smallish IPA. good aroma, good bitter.

wow.

now i have hope for my ed'a haus pale that i cannot stand. im throwin a sixer in the fridge for a week.

i have been sooooo bummed about the taste of these two brews. now I am very optimistic.

**** the freezer. let these puppies sit for a week.

i need another full size fridge.
damn!!!!
just when i got SWMBO to ok a chest freezer for fermenting, now i want another stand up for cold conditioning bottles.


next ill want a kegerator or something.

damn you beer! i hate you!!!!
not really.
