Have a question, i'm brewing an ale at 18 degrees, and i'm just about to lower my ale temp down for a diacetyl rest (I used US-05 and Fermentis recommends lowering by two to three degrees for 48 hours or so), so it'll be around 15 degrees. I just read the temp at which i'll be conditioning, and it's 26 degrees in my cupboard. Is transfering the liquid from 15 degrees to an ambient temp of 26 going to have any affect or impart any odd flavours or will warmer temps only speed up the process of carbonation? Only reason I ask is because i've heard two things - 1. Ale conditioning is best done at fermentation temperatures and warmer conditioning temps should be avoided, and 2 - Conditioning is fine at room temp (in my case on the warmer side). 26 degrees is as cool as I can condition. I'm probably being paranoid about nothing but thought I would check.
