64-65 air temp or beer temp? That would be ideal, if not a bit high for room temp. We keep our fermentation room at 62-64 when fermenting an ale like this one and that keeps our beer temp right in the sweet spot. That will vary depending on your setup, but you want the beer to be around or under 68 degrees I believe.

Should be, but check the actual beer temp to be sure.

Depends on your yeast. But in general, I think those temps are ok for ipa's. Usually have to worry about higher temps with certain yeast strains. Also remember your beer will ferment about 6 deg warmer than ambient.

I tried one after about a week in the bottle and it was a bit rough around the edges yet. After three weeks and a few days in the fridge - they're awesome!

Will a 60 min boil change anything? I don't have the boil capacity to do the extra 30 min

Does your tank only hold 60 min of propane or what?

A 90 minute boil will give you better hop utilization and get rid of DMS. I use 90 minute boils in lighter beers like cream ales.



Reason: Sorry, I completely misread the post……..
