I live in san diego in an un-airconditioned apartment. Its gonna start warming up here real soon and i'll need a way to control my temps.. and if i take my secondary out of the ferm chamber and just put into room temperature...that room temperature might be up to 95+ degrees Fahr. on some days..
So if I have the space should I just leave it in the chamber sitting around 68+/- a few degrees??
And to the no secondary thing im considering trying it but my plan was to dryhop in the secondary... and this way I can start another brew soon afterwards with my primary 6 gal carboy.
Firstly, San Diego here too and I hope it'll hit 95, this gloom is crap.
Second, keep it in if the weather gets 85+ if you can just to be safe. Actually the best idea (from what I read) is to gently put the hops into your beer during the last week of fermentation in your primary, then transfer to the secondary then bottles. So you reduce sediment the most. I will try and find the post where Revvy talks about this.
