I want to brew a British IPA tomorrow night but I'm leaving Wednesday evening. I'll be able to make sure that fermentation has started but I wasn't going to leave my furnace on for the week.
Do you think that as long as the beer has a full day and a half at around 66 degrees it will be ok if I hold the heat in the house to the mid 50's for the rest of the week?? By the time the heat drops below 60, it will have been in the fermenter for 2 full days.
I was going to wrap the fermenter in a blanket at least to keep in insulated.
No worries here right? I guess the only other concern would be a blow off, but I'm not too worried about that.
