What do people do to regulate temperature during fermentation? Do people ever use a wine fridge and remove the shelving or any other ideas?
You don't need to warm it up, unless it was below about 60 degrees where it was. Putting it in a warmer place now is causing bubbling because the warmer temperature is causing the co2 to off-gas, not because it needed the warmer temperature to ferment.
I keep my fermenters in a room that is about 60-62 degrees. That works great for most ales. Anything over about 70 degrees is too warm. Keep in mind that fermentation itself produces heat, and sometimes the actual temperature of the fermenting beer is 3-10 degrees warmer than the ambient air temperature. A "stick on" thermometer, like for aquariums, helps you see what the temperature of the beer inside is.
Some people use swamp coolers, some use fridges, some ferment in their basement, etc. Generally, a room temperature in the 60s is fine.
