The yeast is 71b-1122. I rehydrated in the original pitch. Second time I just sprinkled it on top but the temp was already too low. I have the stc-1000 on the way and a reptile rope heater for heat source. Will be a good ferm chamber for 10 gallons at a time.

Using the newly built chamber to get the temp up to 65/66 degrees and fermentation took off like a bat out of hell!

Ill let it go for about two weeks and rack to secondary. Since I started relatively low OG, I wonder if I should back sweeten a little or just prime with honey before bottling?
