Bottled now... in Community Help Posted January 20, 2019 1 minute ago, Grappler said: Hello, I am moving on to the next step in my first batch. So, they are bottled and sitting cool and dark. After 3 weeks: 1. Do they go right into the fridge? 2. 1 bottle is not filled all the way- will it be ok? Thanks. This is been fun start. If you just bottled them and you want them to carbonate, you need ideally 70 degree room. Cool and dark would be a great place to “cellar” beer, not carb. So three weeks at room temp or higher to carb up. Whether or not you store them warm / cool / or cold is up to you. Understand that beer ages faster at warmer temps. Maybe you want to condition your beer for awhile so warm would be ideal. I have a cellar which is great for lagering and storing beer. When your beer is ready to drink, put them all in the fridge. I dont have much much experience with under filled bottles although I remember them being different than full ones. Some one else will be able to help you further.
