Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

long term storage/conditioning
I've been bulk conditioning several batches in my spare bedroom (which has been in the high 50s to low 60s) and will soon be bottling. The beers range in OG from 1.044 up to 1.09. Will all of these homebrews be okay in the longterm at room temp? I realize that in an ideal world we'd all have cold rooms, but how much does one lose by not cellaring or storing in the fridge.

In case it matters: we're talking about 2 double IPAs, 1 Saison, 1 trippel, 1 single, and 1 heff.

cheers

Re: long term storage/conditioning
By and large ryan the beers you are talking about can deal with room temp. I do that myself in my basement. I'd love to say the place is 60F year round, but realistically its only a bit cooler than the rest of the house. Now and then a batch goes sounth, but I don't think the reason has ever been storage temperature.

Re: long term storage/conditioning
Cold storage isn't the ideal, IMO. I've had ales that were stored cold for long periods and ended up sort of 'lagerized', where a lot of the esters seemed to clean up and drop out leaving the beer very clean, but a little bland.

More important than the actual temp is try to avoid too much variation. If you can keep the temp in a fairly narrow range, that should keep the beer nicely.
