Seems like we are re-tracing the roots of San Francisco pioneers who introduced Steam Beer, produced with lager yeast fermented at ambient temperatures, originally in the 1800's. Anchor used the process in the 1800's along with many other breweries that produced Steam Beer.

I've been brewing lagers warm for a long time now, namely 34/70 at ale temps but tonight have thrown a warm wort over a slurry of WLP830 bock lager yeast at 83 fahrenheit cooling to 17 where it started violently bubbling away almost immediately so this is probably my most extreme yet and will keep you guys posted in a few weeks time

I started fermenting warmer due to actually not being able to detect any difference apart from time in the cold Vs warm batches so just stuck with the fast lager
