I think I'mma try lager with 34/70 at warmer temps. We'll see what happens!

 

I've had good results, but knowing eastern KS like I do, I'd maybe consider waiting for cooler ambient temps.

Unfortunately no fridge these days, but I'll go swamp cooler with frozen water bottles.

 

That's what I've done for primary for many years now.

 

Works great, and you can lager in the keg once primary is done, since you don't have a spare fridge.

 

Yet.  :D

I used to have two fridges, but we turned the garage into a family room.  No room for another now, unfortunately.

As long as you're consistent with frozen bottles, you can get close enough into that 60F mark. If I can do it in a south Florida garage so can you. I kept rotating 4 16 ounce water bottles morning and late afternoon with no issue.

It's amazing what another week or so does for clarity. This is the same IPA I posted earlier. No finings in the boil or gelatin.

Looks good, BJ.  Time and cold are the perfect tag-team for clear beer.

Agreed.  I've used the swamp cooler/frozen water bottle method for maintaining primary ferm temps for years, and it works well.

 

Probably could've gotten another chest freezer for the purpose, but spousal harmony put the kibosh on that plan.

 

So, frozen water bottles it is.

Good name for a beer that a wife might like :)

My English ESB thing I made. Turned out really good actually. I'm not patient enough for super clear.
