Still have 6 bottles left, will probably open one this weekend.
What tweaks? What were the notes/criticisms?

Default Started fermnation at 80 degrees, should I be concerned?


Very new at this and this is my second brew but could not wait to brew this recipe.

Everything went according to plan until I got the wort into the primary, topped off to 5 gallons, and realized I was at ~82 degrees. I tried cooling the primary further but I had to leave the house so I pitched (2-qt yeast starter, Wyeast 1450) at right around 80 thinking the temp would continue to drop and after a few hours I would be in the 'safe zone' and it would only fall further from there. In hind sight, I probably should have waited to pitch later and just leave the wort in the primary but...

By the time I went to bed, the temp had fallen in the mid-70s and this morning it was a steady 69-70 with the airlock going crazy.

Should I be worried about off-flavors? If so, is there anything I can do to minimize them?

Thanks.

Not much can be done at this point. The yeast may have been a bit stressed in the beginning until the temps cooled, but it should still be ok. I would recommend leaving the beer in primary for at least 3 weeks till a month, so that the yeast can clean up a lot of the off flavors that may have developed from pitching high.

What yeast did you use? That could also make a difference.

THIS. Whatever damage was done by the high pitching temps is done. It probably will not affect the beer too much, but the extra week or 2 in primary will go a long way to minimizing any weird flavors caused by the high temperatures.

OK - thanks for the help. I used Denny's Favorite Wyeast 1450 and a starter. I had planned to primary for 30 days and no secondary as the original recipe suggests. Do you recommend a secondary?

No need to secondary if you do a long primary. Your one month timetable sounds perfect.

More roasty flavor and hop bitterness. It is now in Bluebonnet, and I will see how it does in its own category. Only have 4 bottles left I think, need to brew it again.

Need to figure out which grains to increase when I make it again. About to get a keg setup soon and it is a good one to have around.
