Ideal Temperature?

5 posts in this topic

I will be setting up my temp control/fridge/ heat this weekend and starting batch 3 in my second LBK. Just wondering what the magic temperature is for Mr Beer kits (using the kit yeast). Thanks!

My basement in winter typically is near 62-64, so I let my beers ferment a little longer, perhaps 25 days (too lazy to check the gravity). We had a cold spell recently and I let my beer ferment a full 4 weeks. For conditioning I move them next to the boiler where it is near 68 deg F. Seems to work well.

I keep my mini fridge fermenter at 66 the first week and 68 the second and third weeks. What's cool is I can finally do true lagers in Texas and keep the LBKs in the mid 50's.
