hello i'm about to bottle myy first batch
i'm making a coffee stout and i'm in the second week of my fermentationg, fermentation temp is 68-75f (20-24c) in a tub with water because it is too hot over here.
my question is after i bottle i cant put it in the tub but i have a place where i can put it in 65f (18c) is it ok for the priming phase?

Yes, room temperature or just below that is fine for conditioning your bottles. Thanks for converting C to F for us ignorant Yanks. Do Israelis call us Yanks?

Yes you can, and nothing will go wrong. However, at this stage, there's no reason to condition them cool. Pretty much all the fermentation activity is done, so if you wish to store them warmer, you certainly can...and they'll carb up faster.

Actually, you want it warmer while you're carbonating 70+. 65 will be a bit chilly and will take much longer to carbonate. If you are choosing between 65 degrees and over 86, then I would keep them in the warmer place for 3 weeks or so until they carb, then move them to the cooler spot to store.
