How will my kombucha be when my house gets into the mid-high 90 degree temps this summer when I leave my air conditioning off while I am at work?

Ive been brewing constantly for about 6 months but haven't gotten to the time of the year where it will get that hot here in south Texas. I dont have any pets and dont really want to rack up the bill just to keep some tea cold.

Signs point to yes.

Temperatures above 35C [95F] will usually stick [stop] most fermentation. At 41C [105F] most yeast begin to die off and at 140F yeast dies within a few minutes.

I brew kombucha here in Manila in the Philippines where temperatures are rarely below 35C at this time of year!! My kombucha has never had a problem yet.
