You said you pitch at 64 degrees, then let the yeast self warm/rize to 80 degrees. What is the temp in your fermentation? How much of the rise is caused by yeast and will they hold it?
My room temp in usually low seventys this time of year. I have a frige that I usually cool to 67 degrees for most of my Ales. Will I need to put a heater in it?
thanks in advance, Layne
My room is typically very cold, about 65 degrees or so, lower at night, slightly higher during the day and I pitched at 65.
The heat generated by fermentation alone was enough to raise to the temperature to about 80 degrees or so. Once it began to drop, I'll helped keep it up with a space heater.
For the current batch (it's a variation on west 12) I am brewing I am using a temperature controller and a heat wrap. It's been 26 hours since pitching and the temperature is already up to 72 degrees without any assistance.
