Nope, it was one of only 3 batched I have ever dumped since I started brewing in 87. It never took off fermenting and went straight to mold at that temp. Way too cold with Coopers Ale yeast.
I figured out that I would use bottled juice and add a wine yeast (Montrachet) at room temp upstairs and wait till it got going for a day or so before taking down to the basement.
