Check your cellar cooling is working properly

The cellar temperature should be between 11 to 13 degrees centigrade and run for a maximum of 16 hours out of every 24 hours.

This is specifically designed to maintain an indoor environment in a condition suitable for the storage of chilled beverages below 12°C. It is typically found in public houses, restaurants and hotels.

Make sure the fan grilles are free from dirt and if there is a fan or “heat dump” outside the pub, then make sure nothing is stored nearby.

Leave it switched on at all times, the control system will switch on the cooling when required.

Some cellars will get too cold in the winter and good cellar temperature control cooling systems are designed to heat the space up to 11-13c.

Some systems are cellar cooling only and allow the temperature to drop. Cask beer is especially susceptible to damage from cold leading to a chill haze.

Helpful tips

Keep the cellar clean at all times, store beer only and keep well light

During the winter months heating may be required to keep the beer at the correct temperatures

Keep the cold air in, keep the cellar cooling switched on all the time and clean the fan grills regularly
