Hey everyone, I got an extract kit of the Rougue Hazelnut Brown Nectar as a Christmas gift. The kit strongly suggests a fermentation temperature of 60 degrees and try not to go above 65.
I typically keep my carboys in my finished basement, which is carpeted. I'm trying to think of how to get the fermentation temperature down that low without keeping my house ridiculously cold. There is part of the basement that has an exposed concrete floor - would it be suitable to place the carboy directly on that to keep the temperature down?
Thanks for any feedback/suggestions.
I now welcome your scorn and ridicule in exchange for pertinent and useful information.
