Default How will temperature affect my beer?

Beer is brewing at 16degrees Celsius will this affect the outcome at all? I'm brewing in the coopers home brew kit and I'm making the Mexican cerveza.

16C is towards the lower end of many yeasts desired range. This should produce nice clean flavors (higher temperatures normally produce less desirable flavors).
This lower temperature will slow the yeast down slightly, so it may take slightly longer for the fermentation process to finish.
Your temperature is likely ideal.

That's good news then :-) I put the brew on on the 9th and I'm aiming to bottle on the 21st.
thanks for your help mate :-)

that sounds like a good time frame, but do be sure to take multiple gravity readings towards the end of your time-frame. As John said, 16c is ideal for most ale yeasts, you should get a good clean beer, but it does slow things down. And depending on the strain, fermentation could take longer than 12 days. My guess is that you're using the Coopers yeast that came with the kit, which I've found to be fast no matter what temp you give it, but take readings to be sure

That temp will depend on whether it uses ale or lager yeast.

You will probably get some fruitiness. I did a lager (dry lager yeast) once at room temp and it had a pronounced pineapple flavor. If you decide to re-brew, there's a lager yeast recommended for warmer temperatures, I think it's WYeast 2278. THere's a video about it on youtube in the Northern Brewer area.
