It is in my basement where it usually is a constant 64 degrees. I may have stressed the Lalvin K1v1116 out a bit by upping the honey content. My hydrometer reading was at 1.1162! Since then I cut it with a gallon of water and more nutrients. The activated charcoal is only a temporary fix untill I can get more nutrient from the LHBS. The sad thing is the owner of the LHBS talked me out of buying the big $50 bag of nutrients...

There is one more thing I can do to get my basement cooler, gonna close the heating vents.
