Hello, I have no easy way to control temperatue while my bottles are conditioned. My house is kept at 75 degrees and I have no control of that to push it lower. I plan to bottle condition for 2 weeks in the same cooler with ice bottles where I ferment, but afterwards I would like to keep the bottles for up to 6 months after that. What yeast strain will produce no esters when its done eating the priming sugar?

Alterntive idea is to put the carbed bottles into the freezer for a few hours to kill of the priming yeast before letting them sit at *75. Anyone see problems with that? In my experience there shouldn't be any living yeast left.

It dosen't matter much. 75 is great. The two or so points will not have much impact on the flavor profile.

I conditioned with Safale US-05 and it did give some noticeable cider/cabbage flavors. I confirmed with bottle experiments to determine precise ester profiles later that this was the yeast. So it is giving me noticeable flavors, although the culprit might be temperature fluctuations that sometimes send parts of the house to 80.

I don't think it was the yeast. I let a few bottles hit 100 once just to see if I could carb it in a day. It worked, no cabbage. As I recall it was a lager.

esters and such aren't produced during bottling. don't sweat it.

I have great results at Thai room temps( 28-35c) and full carbonation after 3-4 days with Coopers, Mauribrew and Morgans Australian ale yeast.
