I haven't run the data yet on an xBmt you participated in comparing wlp800 fermented at 50 vs 66, no pressure... plan to get it published on Monday-- 40+ participants from NHC!
I am looking forward to seeing these results.
+1. I'd like to see something similar done with WLP830, which is known to ferment fairly clean at warmer temps.
I recently made a Helles at the Green Dragon and the Peltier Chips failed on the chillers. As a result, the WL835 German Lager X fermented out at ~75*F, no pressure. The resulting beer, that I call "Helles?" is surprisingly clean and true to intent. A touch of ester but nothing like I was expecting.
