G'day,
Are you able to purchase a yeast that is good for brewing in hot weather. I read that yeast stops working at 30c. Is that correct?
Cheers

Wyeast 3724. Make a saison. Look up the recipe for Tony's saison, it seems to be very popular...

If possible, try to find a 2nd hand fridge that will fit a fermenter in. Temperature control is critical to making good beer, even if it's just kit based. I bought an old bar fridge for $15 and combined with a temperature controller ($30 from ebay + $10 of parts) it's one of the best investments you can make for brewing.

Depends what you want to ferment.

I have yeasts that are good up to 38-40c.
They're not bred for beer though.

+1 for a saison. I've got one on the go at the moment and it is sitting happily at about 29 degrees. Happy days.
