Having moved recently I no longer have a dedicated fermenting room. Is there an issue with fermenting in the garage? Temp is not an issue as it is well insulated. My only thought was starting up the car in there may impart some unwanted diesel esters in my brew. I'm working on a fermentation fridge but it is still a couple of brews away.

Just wondering if anyone else does this with no adverse results?

Cheers,

JD

My garage is about 35C most of the day. I ferment Saisons in there.

There's a yeast for every occasion.

The fermentor should be blowing CO2, not sucking air in. It will be ok.

Sounds like i've found my next brew. Do saisons stand up to no chill? Mini boil for late hops, seeds and orange peel?

I'm not making them to style anymore. Pretty much using the Belgian Saison yeast with an APA grain and hop bill at 30C+.

Dunno what you'd call them, but they're freakin wicked. Like a really dry APA with a silky mouth feel, huge head and an insane fruitness to go with the american hops.

I no chill everything including saisons and I make no adjustments for late hops. Will be fine. I don't add spices to my saisons.

Sounds interesting. Will have to give it a go while it's still hot.
