does this yeast have a tendency to get really hot? I understand internal heat will rise during the first few days with all yeast but i've had a hard time with US05.
That said, i've still ended up with decent beers. Some off flavors probably as a result of the heat but still way better than wlp001 which is why i continue to use 05. Not to mention it's about half the cost.
I really need a proper ferm fridge!
