warmer temp fermenting beers?
I'd love to make some lagers but the dedicated cold space to keep them in is proving a challenge.
I was wondering if there was a way to make a lighter type beer or lager without needing the cool temps. I'm pretty much stuck right now at about 70-72* temps as it is still pretty warm here and I do not have a basement. I know the Pilsners I have made do well at this temperature but they have a bit too much hop character for me. Perhaps using the same recipe and just adding less hops may work.
I was looking at the williams brewing honey wheat kit but they don't mention temps. Also looked at the honey cream ale and the california lager (that one is warm ferment)
If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.
