Hi all, new to site. Unfortunatly I have had a rookie mistake.
Had a look through some old posts, alot of "Is my brew ruined" stuff which isnt very helpful for titleing tbh, lol
Anywayz, this is my first batch of beer ever, its a Coopers DIY Lager. I bottled it about a week ago and its been really cold here. After bottling I put the bottles in 2 carboard boxs stacked in the corner of the lounge room. Its been like 12 degrees here and from what i read fermentation is at about 21-27 degrees. So I put the heat pad i used on the fermenter between the stacked boxs and unfortunatly the top box got to 31 degrees for about 5 hours, and the bottom box only got to 21 degrees.
So question is, is the top box of beer that got to 31 dead and gonna give me some funky rotten dead yeast smells and flavours or will it still be ok?
And if its dead is there any fix, or just toss it?
