I just brewed a Pumpkin Ale yesterday and the fermentation started out like gangbusters but 24 hours later it stopped. I was reading through some of the threads here and it seems like I have the fermenter temp too high. It's around 78 deg. What do I do now? I read many tips on how to lower the temp. If I can lower the temp will it restart fermenting? I have not checked the gravity - should I do that?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
