good question. I just went to check on the fermenters and realized this would be a problem. That said, for my purposes, I'm going to assume the temp is roughly 5-10 degrees lower than ambient. Considering ambient has been around 70ish, I'm not that worried.
Normally In Summer I ferment in my kegerator using a temp-tolerant yeast. Holds 2 5gal buckets. However, right now my kegerator is full of beer.
