London 3 (1318) @ 77 degrees
« on: May 26, 2018, 05:42:30 PM »
I brewed a single hops Nelson NEIPA yesterday (1.064).  I was gone for the night and I came back today it's it's at 77 degrees.  My house is around 7 and I have a fan on it now which is bringing the temp down to a more desirable range.

My question is, has anyone ever had 1318 spike that high?  Curious what kind of flavors I might be in for.  With this recipe and yeast, I guessing I am getting some extra fruit esters, which might not actually be that bad.

Not too familiar with London 3, it's on my list to try.  But have, a number of times, gotten ferm temps up near 77.  No problems.  You might get some fruity esters, but the only time I've ever had a problem with temps too high is over 80.  If you wanted a super clean ferment then you're probably out of luck, but I think it'll taste good with some esters. 
Generally you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance.
