Hi, I bottled my Delirium Tremens extract clone (10% abv) a week ago. I used just under a cup of corn sugar and 3/4 vial of WLP 570 at bottling. I have it in the warmest room in my house and it's at 66-67 degrees. Will it carb just as well there as at 70 degrees and just take a little longer or must I hit that 70 degree plateau? If necessary, I'll crank up the thermostat a bit but I don't want to if I don't have to. Thanks

it will carb,it will just take longer especially when consider high abv. You could sit some on top of your fridge if you have room.

I wouldn't even try the first one for 6 weeks...and even then I wouldn't worry if it wasn't carbed.
