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.
Yep. The first couple years I brewed were on a shoestring college budget, so I brewed in rubbermaid tubs with frozen water bottles for temp control. So I brewed several 2124 lagers managing temps this way. I was surprised how well the beers came out. Not quite like a freezer with a Ranco, but there is some room for error with that yeast.
