Brewing 1st batch using the Cooper's Beer Kit (Lager)
Instead of using all brewing sugar, did 50/50 mix of brewing sugar and light malt.
Also used a fresh yeast purchased at same store.
I followed instructions to the letter, but was called from house on emergency with the wort at 66 deg. Covered it up, Came back 1 hr later and sprinkled the yeast on top of wort and moved it to location .
Anyhow. During the night, the beer temp dropped to 60 degrees. In the morning I put a heating pad under it, and got it up to 75 deg. Then unplugged it so it will hopefully cool to optimal temp.
Has been 36 hrs since adding yeast and no bubbling in airlock at all.
I am home for next 3 days so I can keep close eye on beer. Want to get it to 66-68 .
Will my beer still turn out right. I have heard adding malt slows fermenting process slightly, but temp fluctuation has me concerned.
Thanks to all who respond
