Hi Stewills

Any dark place, with a relatively stable temp environment.

Linen closet works well for me - it's got more beer in there than sheets.

Keep in mind that if the temp is low (less than 18deg) it will take longer to carbonate. If it's too high (like in a shed during summer), you might get some weird tastes - or may not....

Some guys get a cupboard and dedicate it to their bottles.

Everything Boots said. If you are experimenting with the bottling, for the first few weeks a place that can contain a little mess can be a good idea :p

Started using bulk priming resently and have only just started to get it right (thanks ProMash), a few poped bottles of dark ale can make a mess :(

I use a cupboard in the second toilet (which has very stable temperatures) for the first few weeks, then if any are left I place them down in the underground garage in milk crates.
