Hey everyone! I have a few questions. I plan on brewing Sunday. I am doing an IPA for my first batch. My questions are:
1. I do not have my wine thief yet. Any suggestions on how to cleanly take a sample for my OG?
2. I plan on having my primary fermentation in my basement. I live in central Ohio and I believe the temperature is about 60-65 F. Is that too cool for fermentation ?
