Using safale US 05 yeast... Using swamp cooler... Temps have ranged from 64-68 .... But accidentally dipped down to 62 for a bit... Will this have any effect taste wise?? My first ever brew...
I believe us 05 is good 59-74 or so range... Just being a paranoid noob
You will be fine, off flavor's come from fermenting at too high of a temperature. Remember the actual temp inside your fermenter will be higher. Anywhere from 3 to 10 degrees is what I have seen suggested on this site.
I myself have just two brews under my belt so I will defer to the more experienced brewers to correct my info if needed.
