Temperature Question??

Recommended Posts

So I am brewing my third batch of beer (Diablo IPA) and I am using the cooler with a frozen water bottle method.  I have noticed that the temperature of the wort is actually about 65 to 66 degrees F.  The directions for this brew says ferment between 68 to 76 F.  If I don't use the bottle my temp will be around 74.  What is better, the cooler temps with the frozen bottle or the warmer temp without??

unless you are using a yeast that pees out flavors at a higher temp that you want. example: when making a hefeweizen... high temps = banana / bubble gum esters. or a saison ... high temp = yeasty funky fruitiness. ale yeast usually makes green apple cider flavor if your ambient gets too high (like over 68f).
