ha very funny guys... Made me chuckle
So having two small rather inquisitive kids and leaving 21 litres of beer accessible with a rather inviting tap is a nightmare waiting to happen. Getting the green light to use the utility room was seen as a perfect solution, I have a sink, enough workspace and it's nice and warm...
I did a quick temp reading on the room and it was 20.8, I expect this goes up and down a little during the day due to the tumble dryer and boiler but I don't think there will be huge fluctuations, no more than heating going up and down throughout the day/night in another room.
I've had a quick look at the yeast I used 'Mangrove Jack's M20 Bavarian' and it says "ferment at 18-30 degrees" so sounds like I should be ok?
If i'm to do regular brews this room is the only one I have access too so i'll have to make sure the yeast I use has a higher temperature range? I'll look up this bath thing mentioned to see if this is possible for the future.
