I brewed a Quad two weeks ago (67% efficiency):
Brew Day - 1.092 using an 1800mL WLP 530 starter @ 68
BD + 5 - 1.040, tasted eh, let free-rise to 74
BD + 12 - 1.018, tasted tasty
, temp still @ 74
BD > 12 - 1.015 target, even tastier, TBD
I know it's still early, but should I use a heating device and crank this up to 80+? I've read Belgian yeast strains should be allowed to get as warm as possible. How warm is warm? Is 74 enough?
In reality, I think I'm subconsciously looking for an excuse to go the the new HBS that just opened up in my hood:http://thirstyquaker.com/
