Toes crossed too.
I had no idea the fermentation would take off like that and being a newbie to it all, I didn't realize it could get so warm so fast. I figured if the outside of the bucket said 76 at pitching....it would only go DOWN from there. (now I learned the heat generated from fermentation, could make it go UP!)
Maybe it'll still be decent and drinkable.
I've heard a lot of folks say, it's really HARD to ruin a homebrew....even if you make a couple mistakes along the way. It's still usually better than store bought? (Hopefully, I caught it in time?)
