Fermentation creates heat so yes a mild ice bath and or swamp cooler is a way to keep the temps down. You really want to be under 70˚ for the yeast to do it's job without producing off flavors. That being said I brewed for years fermenting at room temps in the 75˚ range and liked them but now knowing better, my beers have improved.

So...this is a great beer. But...anyone else thinking this would make a nice palette to play with? Anyone add anything to this like a fruit or a spice? Bitter orange? Grains of paradise? I know it is perfect as a pale ale, I'm just thinking what else could I do with it?

Default Yikes!


Well.. sampled my first batch of this brew last night... and it was my first bad-batch of beer. Very, very estery, and not at all in a good way. As John Palmer says in his How to Brew site "sometimes a beer comes along that could flag down a troop of monkeys."

I posted to this thread a few weeks ago that my fermentation took a long time to start. Used Nottingham and just didn't take off. Not sure if I had a bad batch of yeast, or if a wild yeast took over. My fermentation temps should have been pretty good. We were out of town for a few days, but ambient temp didn't get above 70 during that time. Not sure if anyone has other thoughts as to possible causes.

I'm planning to try this recipe again to see if I can avoid this problem next time! Gotta get back on that horse!

Sent this to the keg today.
SG - 1.050
FG - 1.010



Needs to clear a bit, not sure I'll be able to wait as long as Ed says to.....

Easy recipe, inexpensive, and a good beer to boot. I am going to brew this beer every other brew.

Here is a pic of mine. I am not sure what I did wrong but it looks a lot lighter than other peoples pics and has a terrible after taste. It is about 4-5 weeks old, so I am hoping it will get better with age. I ordered the kit from BMW so know the ingredients are correct. Also my mash temps were good.

I think it could be bad because of 3 possible reasons;
- I used tap water for this. First time used tap water and not store bought spring water (even for AG).
- Despite swamp cooler could have fermented at a temp too high.
- First yeast I pitched was bad and nothing after 72 hours, so I had to pitch a second packet.

You must have missed it right?

"This recipe is calculated at 75% efficiency."

What temperature was the room at?
The swamp cooler will bring the fermenter temp down some but if it's too hot in the room, it won't be enough.
