I'm new to brewing and looking for advice about temperature control. After bottling my first batch I went out and got a fridge and a second fermentor (the obsesion begins... ).
What I'm doing at the moment is planning to have one brew in the fridge (at about 20c / 68f) and the other in a makeshift swamp cooler (at about 28c / 82f
I started thinking today though, since everyone says that temperature is most critical during the first week(ish) of fermentation, would I be better off next time starting one earlier, leaving it in the fridge for a week or so then take it out and put the new one in it's place?
Any thoughts or ideas?
