I'm brewing a dubbel and pitched a 1000ml yeast starter of Wyeast 1214 at 68F. It's fermenting in a room now with an ambient temp of 72F. Over the course of 30 hrs, temp has increased to 78-79F according to a stick-on therm. Should I move to the basement with an ambient between 65-68? How about inside of Rubbermaid container with icewater? Or do I just leave it for now and see how it is in the morning (12 hrs for now)?
Not sure if it changes anything, but the OG was 1051 instead of an expected 1065. My guess is that I over compensated for evaporation. I'll be sure to mark 5g on this new 6g carboy.
