This was the second brew
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f164/adv...m-malt-218142/

I can't control temperatre here, so I use a room with good circulation and put ice bricks in, morning and evening. The brew probably sits at 24 to 26 celcius.
The recommended temperature range for T-58 is 15 to 24c, so 24 is really at the high end (and if you are using a thermometer on the side of your fermentation vessel, it is possible that the beer inside can be a couple degrees warmer yet.)

I've heard that US-05 is a very clean-tasting yeast, so it is possible that it handled a bit warmer temp without off-flavors, but at similar temps the T-58 gives some not-so-great flavors. I do know that in the 20-24 c range, T-58 gives a spicy, slightly warm (alcohol) flavor, I don't know what 26 or 28 would do.

Check around here on the forum, there's plenty of people that have dealt with issues of keeping fermentation cool, and I've seen some innovative solutions (wet shirt over the bucket, making a foam box for the fermenter, etc), I'm sure one or more of them could help you out. Droppinggr the temperature down even a couple degrees might make the difference for that yeast.

Thanks for the suggestions dorklord. I'll have a crack at getting the temps down.

Probably stick with the yeasts I've had success with till I can get it fixed.
