Hey lads,

Got a stout in the fermenter should be ready for bottling within a day or two, just wondering, i normally keep the fermenter under the stairs as the weather's getting warmer obviously the room gets warmer, the most it'll reach under there on a really hot day is about 23-24C, once i bottle the brew would it be ok to leave the bottles under there? or would i be better off storing in the fridge? or a combination of both? does this differ between stouts and lagers?

cheers
junior

No, they should stay over 18 deg C for at least 3 to 4 weeks to carb up , then bung a couple in the fridge. as they will mature quicker at room temp.
But they need to be warm for a while at least to ferment out the priming sugar, then try putting some straight in the fridge and by the time u drink them I bet the ones that have been left out at room temp for a longer time will taste better.
