    Using Wyeast 1010 cold (55-58F)

    I'm planning on making a wheat ale using Wyeast 1010, but my fermentation chamber is set at 54 right now, and my house can get above 75 during the day... Which would be better? Under the low end of the temp range, or above the high end? Anyone had to do either?

    AHS Double Chocolate brew day

    I just started mashing the AHS Double Chocolate Stout kit. It smells wonderful!! I plan to add some lactose (maybe a pound) at the end of the boil, and a couple ounces of raspberry flavoring at legging. My mash temp is a bit low, 150. I'm hoping that doesn't thin it out too much.
