Alright ... before I even start, last night I already RDWHAHB but ... I had my freshly brewed APA in the fermented with US-05 in the basement that was brewed Wednesday afternoon. When I checked on it last night after work, the ambient temp was at 75 degrees. I moved it to where I thought it would be about at the 70 mark and as of this morning it's still at 72. Couple questions...
1)How much damage do you think was done while it was at 75 for 24 hours?
2)Do you think it's going to be mediocre if it stays at 72 degrees for the next 3 and a half weeks?
3)After 48 hours in 70+ temps, would it be worth it to try to do a swamp cooler for it?
I know, I know ... beginner's worries but still ... this is my 1st mini-panic post and my 4th batch of beer so i think i'm allowed
heh! Really I'm leaning towards just let it ride and RDWHAHB , but I need some reassurance. I'm really counting on this beer being awesome in 8 and half weeks for late July when I'm on vacation. I just don't want to mess it up!
