hello!

i'm needing to brew a couple beers for a beer festival the first week of september. i have temperature control for one of the beers, but the second is going to (most likely) ferment at the temperature inside the house. my evening temperature in my house gets down to 69 degrees over the course of the evening, but gets up to 78 degrees during the day (regardless of what i keep the thermostat on).

are there any good beer styles and/or yeast strains that would still ferment nicely with temps ranging from about 70 to 78 degrees? will varying temps during fermentation negatively effect my beer?

thanks in advance.

cheers
j

Belgian and Trappist yeast strains do well, as do Saisons (even warmer than 75 for the Saison). I would try one of these.

Yepper....I just brewed a saison last week and left my loft at 88 for three days.

I'm doing a 10 gallon batch on Saturday. I'm hoping for heat for sure.

I timed it perfectly...because after about 4 days of high heat, it has cooled off again. I wrapped a sleeping bag around it now.

It wouldn't hurt to spend some time at one of the vendor's websites who sell yeast, such as Austin Home Brew.

Find the yeast section and browse through it looking at fermentation temps. This will also give you the characteristics of the various strains.

Nice. I have (on loan) a 14 gallon blichmann conical that is just staring at me to do something with it, but there's no way I can temp control it. I'm hoping for a good San Diego July week to do its thing.

Or go directly to the sites. Their copy is all directly from the company.

That said, the ranges can be conservative in the literature. Some of them don't list for as high as they can be fermented.

Well if anything, since I presume it is a metal conical, you could put a space heater beneath it and let the heat rise...Of course you in California may not know what a HEATER is.

FYI.

thanks for all the replies. i actually am brewing a saison for personal consumption this weekend, so i can actually leave that one out and get to brewing the IPA.

if the saison turns out well, i'll brew that one again for the festival!

thanks for the replys.

oh, and i realize i do need to study up on yeast strains more. i'm still in the dark about those things.


peace to all.
