I have small batch of a Partial Mash APA (A doctored version of EdWorts Haus Ale)going in a 3 gal carboy right now. It's been in primary for about 12 days so far. Some time around day 4-6 the temps creeped up very high to about 76-78F (yikes). I moved the carboy to a cooler area and its since been hanging out in the 66-70F range. I haven't tried any samples yet (it's a pain taking a gravity sample in a 3 gal carboy with a thief), so I don't know if there are any off flavors. I am assuming that there will be due to the high temps possibly for 2days or more. If I leave it in primary for a little longer will the yeasties "clean-up" any of the off flavors? Is there anything I can do to mask the off flavors (Dry hopping?).
Any thoughts are appreciated.
