well the temps have taken a bit of a dip here in Colorado lately. i'd say to expect 75F during the day, but down into the low 50s or high 40s at night. barring any heat waves or cold snaps the temp in the water bath will probably average 65-68. nothing terrible.
Iordz, what you said makes perfect sense. i think i'll continue to keep the temps low before i leave and if SGs justify a transfer to 2nd then i'll do that before i leave. after i made my original post i read EVERYTHING there was about dry hopping, and i'm thinking that 7 days for a dry hop isn't too long at all, so i'll go ahead with that before i leave if i can rack to 2nd.
thanks for the quick replies, anyone else have anything to add?
