It's currently 32c and 76% humidity, summer has finally hit!

Will this be warm enough for me to ferment my beer or should I use a heater?

Looks like you got a lot of rippin' up to do winkle. No less than 23 beers planned including a few saisons, I see.

Use some dry enzyme while you're at it, cleans up those flavours.

Send the warm weather down here. I've been planning a saison for weeks but melbourne is stuck in the low 20's with a howling gale most days.

Can i recommend smelling some dandelions and sneezing into the fresh Wort as well?

JDW81 i know how you feel but on the flip side its saving me money on the brewing fridge not running all day trying to stay at 17... try crash chilling at 0 during that 40degees... sigh poor fridge(good thing SWMBO didnt know :p )

I'm in exactly the same boat. Thinking of just using my fermentation fridge, but where is the fun in that?!

Just use an extra 2 kilos of sugar and an extra cup of bakers yeast and you will be right mate!

40 in ipswich yesterday, surely that should be warm enough and I won't need a heat belt... what with the aircon running and a heat belt Julia is sure getting her carbon tax cut!
