Maybe a dumb question, but shouldn't you be fine if you just keep the temperature within the
yeast's optimum fermentation temperature for both the primary and the secondary fermentation.

Speaking of ladybugs...I introduced ladybugs to deal with aphids twice (three and two years

Just picked one up today and I'm pretty pumped to put it to use in the next two weeks. It has
both the Brix % and the SG.
