post #9286 of 10831
Does anyone here know how big a temperature difference it takes to have a bad effect on beer?.. It was way cold last week, and the temperature dropped to 55F in my cellar. Warmer now, and just under 59F now... Not much I can do about it, just wanna know whether this is enough of a difference to fuck my beer up in the long run...

Guess that's the problem with a level floor "cellar"... frown.gif

from what i understand getting a few degrees colder doesn't make a big difference, but getting it too hot does as well as constant fluctuation

Well there will be constant fluctuation, is kind of what I meant... Maximum 0.5F a day... Just wondering if that can do any harm...

Edit: apparently fluctuations this small won't have àny effect... Good to know...

I posted this in another thread, but there is evidence that the development of "cardboard" flavors is extremely temperature-dependent. The exact evidence was detectable amounts after a few days at 40C (104F), while there was none detectable after 4 months at 20C (68F).

This...I didn't like trading in the summer because of the heat kills hop profile

oh that level of fluctuation is definitely ok. i was talking more like fluctuations in double digits, high single digits.

Some beers from Sunday:

Can't say this one did that much for me. Sour, sure, but nothing new or groundbreaking here, and especially not at $11 for a 330 ml bottle:


This one, while also nothing groundbreaking, was what you'd expect and did a pretty good job of it. A bit ashamed to say I had it with some salted caramel gelato, but it worked:

Calvados barrel aged La Buteuse. Heavy on the oak (not a fresh bottle I think), but ridiculously good.

I'm off to tour some of the local microbreweries by bicycle with friends. It doesn't get much better than that!

I'd love a bottle of Liquid Confidence right now.. Enjoy! I think I've only tried the sherry barrel-aged one.

Good stuff. Definitely a crossover of sorts. Reminds me of a DIPA. Quite sweet.
