Any recommendations on storing at 55-58 degrees for 5-6 days? I have a portable air conditioner with a thermostat down to 61 degrees that I can stuff in a closet. Didn't know what a difference of a few degrees would make. Maybe a better suggestion for the storing process?

Storing at 55-58 degrees for 5-6 days? Is that for your fermentation temperature? Or is that for after fermentation?

What yeast are you using? That will actually determine the best temperature for fermentation. 55-58 degrees is kind of a weird temperature, though. A bit too cool for ales, a bit too warm for lagers- that's why I'm asking what yeast you are using and what the instructions tell you to do.

I use an Igloo Ice Cube cooler, with the fermenter in the middle and water surrounding it and a few ice bottles in there (or, an aquarium heater to warm it up) and a floating thermometer to check the temperature.

Thank you all for the help for us novices. We do appreciate it. So we tried the Turbodog clone last nite and it was tasty! This was after the first week in the bottle, another still to go but as advised we are to try after the first week. It tasted a little like a stout, fine with me, but it was smooth and very frothy, as I suppose it should be after the first week of cabonation. We registered 4.1% APV. We brewed the same recipe the following week so I will post more as we go. Thanks again all who chipped in and we question more as time goes on. Cheers!
