So my friend and I are getting into brewing and we're starting a batch of apfelwein this weekend. we live in a house with 12 other guys and there is no central air just window units. ideally, we put the carboys and fermenters in the basement, but the school is sending over an architect for a housing inspection next week so it would not look that good if the school knew we had 5 gallons of homebrew in the basement (a couple of the guys are under 21) so we thought we could just throw it in the closet and lock the door to our room.
will this be too hot for the yeast? keep in mind we are going up for the weekend so after that, the air will not be on so it will get quite warm. what temperature range can motrachet yeast handle before we would start to notice off flavors?
i know, the best thing to do is wait till we move back in and have it in a cool environment but school isnt for 6 weeks and we'd like to have something good to sip on when we return
