I am looking to brew the Oktoberfest from the most recent Zymurgy using California Lager Yeast
. This yeast will maintain lagering characteristics up to 65 degrees. It is not recommended for cold fermentation. My basement is a pretty steady 67-8 degrees...does anyone have any suggestions for keeping the fermenter at 60-65 in a 67-8 degree environment (short of turning the AC on!).
I'd really like to brew that all grain recipe and this is the only thing holding me back!
Thanks as always for your help
