yeast to hot?
« on: August 08, 2016, 09:03:43 PM »
making a hefeweizen with a yeast starter using white labs wlp 380, got it down to 68 to pitch. I have it downstairs and it is 71 F right now on the stir plate. 71 F is kind of high so I put a fan on it and It didn't go down much.
 am I ok with a starter at 71 f?

You're growing yeast, not making beer.  Yeast grows better at warmer temps.  You'll be fine.

thanks for the info. It is down stairs all bubbly right now. Looks good and yeast is having dinner.
