The fresher you drink is, the better it tastes. Beer is best stored in a dark, dry place at low temperatures in the cellar. The more alcohol your beer has, the longer you will enjoy it. Decide for what you wish to store beer. Is it for later consumption or a party?
Proper storage for home-brewed beer is possible at cold temperatures. The unfiltered state and still-active yeast cells in the beer ensure that it reacts sensitively to heat. This can even cause a bottle to burst.
Rules for beer storage for later:
- In the dark dry place
- Between -1 and 8 °C or a maximum of 10°C
- The cold chain must be stable
- Different temperatures for various types of beer
- The more hops are used in the beer, the more sensitive it is to light and temperature fluctuations. The bitter-tasting compounds are affected in particular
- If the alcohol content is around 5%, you can store your home-brewed beer for around three to six months
- With an alcohol content of 8 %, beer can be treated as good red wine and matured in the cellar. This treatment is for sorts with a high malt content.
