As I am quite new to this newsgroup, I do not know if this topic was
already discussed. If so, please excuse me.
I would like to know how I should store my beer. Of course, in a
rather cold and dark place, so I put it in my cellar. But how should I
put it? Upright or lay it down? I believe there are some aspects to
think over. Crowncap or cork, beer with yeast/sediment or without,
bottle size (?) etc.
I heard that, different to wine, it is not necessary to lay corked
bottles down. Is that true?
Does it have any influence if I lay bottles of lager beer with
crowncap in the fridge?
Or does it even make a difference storing bottles with crowncap or
swing top bottle?
If I lay down bottles with yeast/sediment I enlarge the surface of the
sediment. Does this have a bad/good influence on the beer?
Thanks in forehand for your opinions!
Greetings from Germany and Prost!
