In theory, being in a cooler can stall the yeast and prevent them from working their magic during aging. This is the argument that some people use against putting beer in a cooler.

In practice, it will age just fine. Yeast are resilient little buggers. Elgood's Flag Porter is brewed with yeast recovered from a ship that sank in 1825.

If the yeast can survive over 150 years inside of a bottle in the bottom of the ocean, then a week or two in the cooler won't hurt them.

Just my $0.02
Just read this (sorry a month late..)

Depending on what kind of yeast is in the brew, it may die off during the cooler process. Example: yeasts that you use in IPA's don't normally live below (57?) degrees F. Yeasts you might use in lagers are more resilient and can take cooler temperatures. Your example above is using a yeast that NEEDS cooler temperatures to work it's magic. If you store that beer while it's fermenting at a temp that's near room temperature for too long, you'll get a very nasty tasting beer.


ps. just opened my first Honey Cream Ale that I brewed and bottled about two months ago. Sooooo good.

Nah, it just goes to sleep. It will wake up. When you go to the homebrew store and pick up a vial of White Labs, you pull it out of the cooler, don't you?

Yes, lager yeast can throw some nasty phenolics when brewed at room temperature.

However, I believe the Flag Porter yeast is a top-fermenting ale yeast (the warm kind). It tastes like ale yeast and is identified as a Brown Porter, which is almost always brewed with an ale yeast. The only Porters that are typically brewed with lager yeast are Baltic Porters.

Very nice

Cream Ale and Kolsch are the two styles that break the temperature rules. They are both made with an ale yeast, but are both traditionally lagered at cold temperatures for secondary fermentation.

Yes, but to my knowledge they aren't keeping it at the 34 degree's that many coolers are set to. I guess I was referring to the people that go out and put a few beers in the garage refrigerator and pull them out 5 years later. A wine keeper or a nice cool spot in the basement is more than enough.

Interesting.. I didn't realize that. I've never attempted a porter and just assumed it was the same as most lagers.
