I took a reading and the final gravity reading was 1.002 and the og was 1.040 so that's like 5% abv cool. I am surprised that it took only a day and a half to finish fermenting.

Yeast and Fermentation / 78 degrees too hot?

So i had the perfect basment for fermenting the ambient temp was about 65- 68 degrees but not anymore my brother took over the basement and his computer works better then our furnace at times.

My question is this for a ale is 78 degrees too warm?
Is 78 degrees to warm for a diacetyl rest and for initial fermenting when i am making a lager?

I have a dorm fridge that I converted with a johnson control so i can get 68 degrees but then I forgo my beer fridge for a while

I have a three parter if i take a half drank keg out of my fridge let it get back to room temp then cool it down back down does that effect it? If i can how many times can i do that befor the beer is shot

I would go with the bayou classic sp10. It works like a champ. I also do HVAC and converting things to from lp to natural gas and vice versa is quite difficult if you don't have the right equipment. I can bring 10 gallons to a boil in less the 15 min with The sp10 and it's cheap. If you buy this one you won't mind having to fill propane tanks

I am looking to make a counterflow wort chiller and I was looking to use copper for it or should I use stainless tube? Does the copper affect the beer? How many feet of tube should I use?

Lets hope I have done enough to secure my spot in hell bc that's where the party is at. According to the polka song there "in heaven there is no beer" so that's not where I am goin

All Grain Brewing / Re: Getting Started

So I ended up going with the xtreme cooler and I am going to do my first batch this weekend.
does any know how many degrees above my target temperature the water should be for mashing (i think mashing is the right word) for a 70 quart coleman extreme?

As a person that has almost lost two fingers to power equipment while sober bc lack of caution and attention I don't think drinking while doing anything like that is smart but if your tractor is like mine and will kill if you get off the seat and you don't have the mower deck going and your just cruising the yard for kicks  and giggles I don't see why not

So I was wondering what's the normal shelf lifr of home brew is. I normally store them at room temperature in kegs that I force carbonate. How long does it take till there not drinkable anymore?

I will have to see if they have it. I swear minnesota is kind of stil in the prohibition bc our selection is slim to non. And if it's not made by miller or bud you have to pull a second mortgage to buy a six pack of craft brew or it may be just where I am looking to buy
