Just had a quick question, so when in primary, and the little yeasties are doing what they do best, I have read the temp. of the beer rises to roughly 5-10 degrees more than the ambient temp of the room (ex. if you keep your house at 72 degrees (F), the temp of the primary is going to be between 77 and 82 degrees). When looking at yeast max/min temps in say the BYO yeast strain chat, is the temp posted that of the primary or of the surrounding temp?
example: WLP001 California ale from white labs says it ferments at 65-70, does that mean I would have to keep my house/brewing area at 55-65ish? cause if so, my S-04 (59-75) might be in trouble in my imperial brown as I keep my place around 70-73. Am I in trouble?
Thanks in advance.
