My beer got warm during fermentation. We had a couple of weeks of 95F+ days (unusual this time of year in WVa). Apparently I didn't keep the frozen water bottles rotated enough. Anyway, I got 5 gal of juicy fruit pumpkin ale! LOL The beer smells great! It just has that off flavor. I won't be sharing this one with friends. Damnit!!!

Oh well, time to quit screwing around and build a fermentation chamber for sure. I'm thinking chest freezermentor. SWMBO's only comment was..."are we going to be able to afford the electric bill?" HAHAHA
