Fermentation chamber too cold?

<< < (2/3) > >>

morticaixavier:
it's perfect. no reason to do anything. 64-66 is a great temp to be at.

a10t2:
Due to evaporation, the water will be a couple degrees cooler than the air. So 70-76°F ambient plus a water bath may be just right. Obviously you can supplement that with ice if the beer starts to get too warm.

flbrewer:
I should add that the water temp in the cooler has stayed VERY stable at 60.

ynotbrusum:
Unless you want certain esters present, you are in good shape and should not do anything with it.  It will likely warm up over the next few days and turn out perfect.  If it stays colder than you want, you can remove it from the after in a few days and let it free rise a bit at the end of fermentation.  Good job!

Would you elaborate on the esters? I've noticed this afternoon it has finally risen a bit. The fermometer has raised to show 66 for the green and 68 yello.
