So I am fermenting a Moose Drool clone and was using a heat pad to bring it to the called for temp of 68 (my basement was 63). I've had to work late a few nights and forgot to check the temp...until tonight. 75 So, it's probably been that high since Sunday night. Any input on the likely implications on my brew?


Thanks!

Just for a future reference all my fermentations got 5f above ambient during vigorous stage 5-7 I would say. I wouldn't have used the heat pad, cool it down give it a long primary 4 weeks.

If you can cold crash it 48 hours, then bottle. It will taste better aged out to let the hot fermentation flavors fade

How long for bottle conditioning would you suggest?
