I need to get these fermenters out of the living area. They sit now in 70 degree temps year round and it's been working well for me, but the area smells like a brewery. I'm the only one around here that likes that smell.

I'd like to move them to a room where it's 74 degrees year round and out of sight.

I use Wyeast american ale yeast number 1 on most of my ales.

Q:Will this higher temp. wreck my brews(kill the yeast) or should I give it a try?

Put them all in swamp coolers after you move them to said room..

If you arent going to regulate the temperature at all, you're going to have to find a more temperature-tolerant yeast.
