Just as the title asks. I do not have a way, other than a swamp cooler to get the temps down below 72ish all year round. Is there a better type of yeast, type of beer to brew that will not give off the esters that occur when the fermentation is at a 70-75 degree temp? I mostly brew IPAs, and Stouts.

Belgian yeast does well in higher temps, but your typical ale yeast is going to suffer. Unfortunately, nobody has come out with a yeast strain that is temperature resistant in that way.

Might be a good idea to shoot for beers/yeasts that are on-style at that range of fermentation temperatures. Right now I am doing an ESB using Wyeast 1968 that should be ideal in the 70-74 range.

Most higher temp yeasts will still give esters at those temps. The swamp cooler is not a bad thing if you can afford to feed it frozen pop bottles every day.

It's just impossible to get a clean-tasting beer without the lower temps. I'm personally going to be looking for yard sale dorm fridge this summer so I can build a lagering chest with it's parts.

US-05, S-04, S-33 and Wyeast 1335 all work well up to 75 degrees. I use them all summer long without a problem.

Cooper's yeast ferments fairly clean in the 70s. You might want to try to culture it from a bottle because the dry packaged product is not very good (and according to a lot of people not even the right strain).

I use the hell out of US-05. I guess I will be resorting to the swamp cooler method, or I may go the same route Yooper is using with the "Ice Box" cooler with the foam lid and frozen water bottles. Thanks for the info guys.

I've heard good things about Saisons. I should make one of them next.

The Wyeast 3711 French Saison does excellent at the temperatures the OP will have. The Belgian strains like it a little warmer, say 80-90 degrees.
