Pacific Summer Ale

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I put dow a Pacific Summer Ale two days ago when i put the yeast in it was 22° but the next morning/all day it got up to 26° max.

So i put it in my esky with a wet Towel to get it down to 18

 

My question is should it be ok? SG was 1.026

Fear not Beanbag !

It won't be the best it can be having gone to that temperature but it will still be perfectly alright.

 

The wet towel relies on evaporation to cool the fermentor, so won't do a whole lot of good enclosed in the esky. Either put it in the esky withe some ice / frozen bottles / whatever, or, bring it out and sit it in a dish of water with the wet towel draped over it - for best results with a fan blowing at it and a lump of ice on top to keep the towel cold and wet.
