If it's fermented out then it should be okay... can you lay your hands on a rubbermade tub/ storage bin and a t-shirt? Putting the fermenter in the tub with water and a t-shirt over it to wick the water up WILL cool it down a bit, even without someone adding frozen bottles of water every few days.

Out of the 6 batches I have made, the only one that I wasn't happy with was the one that I rushed.

Let it be. There are worse things than waiting a few more weeks for your home brew.

I just wanted to interject quickly here.....that SUCKS you have to go back to school this early, I practically just went on summer break! Rough, anyway, good luck! I would def. let it sit, nothing good comes from rushing brew. Plus, the beer will only be aged more if you let it sit, but the beer might not be ready/ ruined if you rush it. You decide

Over the past few days I have been testing out the wet t-shirt method for cooling the carboy in order to see how effective it is before I leave, but it doesn't seem to work that well. I think the only way for it to work well is to use ice as well. Any last suggestions on topic thread in general or cooling a carboy...I have to make my decision tonight after work, so last call for advice!! By the way, thanks to all those that have chimed in

I wrote up what I've been doing in someone's thread yesterday.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showpost...14&postcount=6

I've managed to keep the temps below 70 for 2 weeks now, (With temp spikes in my apartment into the 80's- I refuse to turn my air on yet) without being too consistant with adding frozen water bottles...I've only added them every couple of days.
