    My fermentation chamber can only get the temp down to 40F, is this too hot? I really need to
    bypass the mini-fridge thermostat.I'm ususally 32F-36F degrees for 1 month. At that temp and
    time, yeast au...

    I agree with Jon, I bet it'll be fine. Maybe just a hint of fruitiness. Lager fermentation can
    take longer than 11 days - i never secondary a lager that soon (if I secondary at all). With
    lagers, pati...

    My report back - it was a success. The hop combo is perfect, and dry hop level great as well.
    It's not as light and clean as I typically drink, but that's a water issue on my end. I need to
    work on my...

    The real question is Is the fermenting done? The only way to tell is w/two hydrometer readings
    that show no change. No secondary needed.Next time I'd encourage you to use a hydrometer and
    dry hop once...

    It sounds like you should be able to ferment pretty easily in the target range of 45-50 F for
    basic lagers. This is how I do it: I'll raise the beers temperature (diacetyl rest) at the
    end of fermen...

    Is there any way that the less oaky bottles had more oxygen exposure than the others? More head
    space or different caps that leaked?
