    Hi guys on my third bat h of home brew now, do my brewing in the utility room so it’s cold, I got a head pad for the initial fermentation so the bucket was a good temp but secondary fermentation (I’ve bottled) is not going to work at the temperature, I put the heat pad in the cupboard with the bottles but not kept it warm so it’s about 12 degrees, does it matter if it skips the secondary?

    Consider fitting a larder fermenter fridge setvup. It is easy...stable temp for fermenting. I have 2

    Hi Daniel, it will need secondry ferment for carbonation if you have primed for sparkling cider.
