    Just a blanket will be fine. You're just trapping the heat generated by the yeast activity.
    Once active fermentation slows, it'll drop to room temperature even with the blanket. I'm sure
    a heater woul...

    Saisons want to start low and finish high. I keep it cool, about 65, on the first day and let
    it rise on its own. Around day 3-4, I'll wrap the carboy with a blanket to trap the heat in and

    Use pure pumpkin .. NOT pumpkin pie filling. I used two large (29 oz) cans of Libby's. Dumped
    them in a roasting pan in the oven at 350 for an hour and then added it to the boil with 15
    minutes to go....
