Do you think 72 degrees is to high to let this clean up the rest of the way? Majority of the fermentation was done at 63, and I'm down to 1.020. Problem is my main area for fermenting is down to 54 and will be until friday (when it warms back up around here).

I've heard this yeast can drop out rather easily below 60. Since most of the fermenting is done would I still pickup off flavors at this point with a higher temp?

I really have no info on that. I always ferment all my ales at room temperature, around 68-70F. Even if the yeast starts to hybernate with a cooler temperature it should wake up when the temperature comes back up. Often fermentation activity raises the temperature in the vessel as well. If it were me I would move it some where warmer while you think the temperature would cause problems, a shower works well. If your using glass just wrap the carboy in a towel to keep it from getting any light.

The BYO 250 clone guide suggests using Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale at 72°F... seems like a high temperature for fermentation - will likely cause a lot of esters...

Have you guys tried various fermentation temperatures and have opinion on the best temperature to go for?

That is the yeast I use with my recipe and I ferment it at 70F with no problems.

Ok I kinda screwed up. I forgot I was brewing this tomorrow and forgot to set out my 2 pints of guinness to sour. I have em out now. is there anyway to speed up the souring process seeing as I don;t have 4 days?

you can sour the beer while yours is in the primary and then after several days, boil the soured beer, cool and add to the fermentor. (that's actually how Guinness does it, except it's soured mash, not beer)

I've never tried it this way, but I bet it wouldn't suck. Beersmith also suggests this method.

Going to keg this this weekend, can someone help me figure out how to carb it?

I have 2 systems, a CO2 setup with 2 kegs (1 carbing, 1 priming in the carboy), and a nitro/beer gas system.

I really don't want to have to use my CO2 to carb, and I'd rather not prime since I want exact results.

Is it recommended that i get a Diffusion stone? Or can I use the set it and forget it method with nitro by setting the PSI to serving... 30 or so.

Here is what I do with my nitro tap and they come out great and get better over time with the "Cascade" effect. After I rack to my keg I drop it in my kegerator and put it on CO2 for 24 hrs at 30 PSI and then switch over to my nitrogen at around 28 PSI. No shaking at all! Nitrogen does not dissolve (as easily) in beer and with a 75/25 beer gas mix it will take a few weeks to be carbed

I think that sounds easy. CO2 at 30psi for 24 hours, then Beergas at 28psi for 2 weeks?

That would give it a couple weeks to condition as well
