carbing at 80 f
I did up a fiesta blonde lager there awhile ago. I bottled it Monday with 210 grams of corn sugar. The room temp in here gos up to 82f and I can not lower it at this time. Will it make my beer carb faster? Will it mess with the taste? I tasted some before bottleing and it was great. Just wondering if that small amount of sugar at higher then usual carbing temps makes much of a difference.

It won't mess with the taste. It might make them carb a week faster than the 3 weeks it usually takes.

Alright, well that's relieving. I wonder if I should pop one open to see how its doing

I think it's a waste of beer to opening one early, even if it's got some carb it will more than likely be green. Me I prefer having all my beers drinkable, rather than sneakign them early. You bottled on Monday, Today's Friday, that's 4 days, right? If you're going sample, wait til at least NEXT FRIDAY.

I can never understand the point of sneaking beer's early when we KNOW they're not ready yet. I like to drink beer that tastes good to me, that's why for instance I don't choose to drink Bud Light. Not that it's a bad beer, but I don't like the taste. So I don't choose to drink it....same for my beers when I'm sure they're not ready yet. I'd rather drink something else and know that at the end of the journey I'll have 2 FULL cases of good beer.
