Brewed a Saison with 3726. I had it in a storage container with water and an aquarium heater that kept it @ 82 for the first 4 days, then up to 88 for 10 days. It started @ 1.053, but is only down to 1.014 (corrected). It was an extract recipe with 85% extract, 15% cane sugar. It was a 1.6 liter starter into a 3.5 gallon batch.
I want it to go lower, but am afraid to push the yeast much hotter.
Will taking it hotter lower the gravity?
What temperature should not be exceeded?
Does it just need more time?
