Why would you raise the temp to over 80 during fermentation? I must have read that wrong.

Check out White Labs Super High Gravity Yeast. Supposedly it can ferment up to 25% alc.

Only went in the bottle yesterday after 13 weeks in the fermenter. Sample tasted pretty good. Yes, it is a little darker than the original, but I don't care provided I get close on taste.

maybe not 80 but at least 75..I do it to keep the yeast chuggn along and i want to supress ester production in the beginning by producing more phenols and by raising the temp later on in fermentation i have more control over the ester profile and also helps make sure the beer fully attenuates before crashing
