I put my yeast in at 20C instead of the recommended 18C, there was some minimal foaming, and Im just wondering if this is normal.
I cant regulate the temperature, and its sitting in my kitchen on top of the fridge, I also put the yeast in at 20C, as I was already at 23 litres, and couldnt add any more cold water, and figured I was a bit stuck, and had to go ahead.
Its day 3, koisen collar still on, and foaming only went up an inch or 2, and seems to have settled.
I understand on a 6.5% brew it should be a good bit higher ?
I messed up the first brew, the european lager, as I didnt let it settle for long enough(followed instructions of 7 days brewing, but tilted the vessel to get the beer into the bottle quicker[doh!]), so it was very heavy or rich. Tasted better after I abandoned the bottles and returned to them after 6 months.
Anyway, Is my dark monk ok ?
