Another brew for Alvin’s wedding. Another pale ale, but aiming for something a bit citrusy this time. The weather has been crazily warm – for the last brew it was almost perfect – 25 degrees during the day and maybe 15 degress at night. With a nice little insulated cover over my fermenting tank, my brew was staying at about 20 degrees.
This brew might be a little bit different. It’s getting up to 30 degrees plus in the day and it’s going to be tricky to keep it cool. I might need to bring it inside the cool house. I guess a highish fermenting temperature will probably give me some fruit esters in the brew. Perhaps not such a bad thing for this recipe.
