That's fine, your beer is probably around 22°C so there's loads of room to play with.

MJ M20 is my favourite yeast so far, lovely flavour profile and it really does give a nice silky mouthfeel.

However, for future brews ensure that you are not "relegated to the Utility room"!

Mine made the comment "I will not play second fiddle to beer!" at which stage I pointed out ...

"Second fiddle? You are lucky to be in the band!"

... and then, to prove my point, I slept in the garage with my beer until I was forgiven!
So, how many years was it before she came around?

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.
I've used that yeast at 28 degrees and it was lovely I had bananas as is the style.
