I brewed up 5 gallons of this on Saturday, as per the original recipe. Man, this was fermenting like crazy within 24 hours. Fermenting really hot as well. I am using a swamp cooler so hopefully I will keep it in the 60-70 range, but has anyone noticed any adverse effects from fermenting on the higher end of the range (70-75)?

I used -05 yeast, and it tasted good to me fermenting at 70-72. May have even hit 74, that was before I stuck a thermometer on it (Was my first batch)

All I gots is a couple of pics from bottling.


According to the rooftop brew page I'm just under 8%, w00t.


Racking off for priming/bottling. FTR the orange buckets are only for transfer/sanitizing. I went to secondary after the airlock stopped going (about 3 days) because it had all sorts of fun stuff on the bottom and a protein ring or whatever that is on top.

This stuff looks really good and sounds delicious. I'm making 10 gal this weekend in 2 fermenters. One will have an addition of 1 lb dried sour cherries and the other 1 lb clover honey. Hopefully it won't ruin what you've started as a good recipe Brandon

I just tried a warm bottle after just two days of priming. It's already carbonated! And good!

It is also almost black, because of the dark LME I used. I must say I'm pleasantly surprised and can't wait to try some more after a couple of weeks.
