I've started up my first batch of beer - a milk stout with OG 1.057. It's been fermenting in a carboy in the dark closet for about 18 hours now. I have a thermometer hanging in the room to check the ambient temperature. The ambient temperature is sitting at about 72F, fluctuating +/- 1 degree.
I have no ability to control the temperature in this place. I live in a basement apartment, and temperature is controlled by the tenants upstairs. It's always around 72F in this place with very little fluctuation throughout the day.
I know that higher temperatures will result in esters and, if extreme, fusel alcohol. I also know that the fermentation temperature is going to be higher than the ambient temperature. What are my options here? What styles are appropriate for me to be brewing, considering this temperature?
