Sure enough, that's what I have. Thanks for translating no-rinse for me. I didn't want to assume that's what it meant, but glad to know I can use it in this way.

Thanks for the info, I'm in SE Asia and can't get some of the products I've read about, good to know I can use bleach in a pinch!

@brewchez Sorry! Did I commit a faux-pas? Still new here.

Good to know. I was told this yeast would be good for an American IPA, I didn't know it was so versatile. I'll stay the course at 70F and look forward to seeing how it turns out.

Excellent. That should work just fine, thank you. I'm still pretty pumped for my first brew, thanks for helping me with the brakes (as I thought I could be drinking my first brew before my trip on the 10th!).

Thanks! I am using Cascade hops, so maybe that's what the homebrew guy was talking about with regard to the grapefruit flavour. Interesting how the yeast package said the range goes up to 75F when 70F would be considered too high, doesn't seem like a negligible amount on the part of the manufacturer. I will keep that in mind for the future. I'll keep the current course I'm on with temp, it just read 69F on the outside of the fermenter. What would be considered a short time to drop a couple of degrees?

Thanks Graham for the advise. Not what I wanted to hear, but probably what I needed to hear :-) Since it's a DIY cooler I rely on ice. I head out of town for a week on the 10th. I may be able to ask my wife to change out the ice, but she's out long enough I think the temp would be too tough to keep consistant. I would prefer to bottle by the 10th if I can. With the time frame you laid out, I think I could make the low-end of your windows. How would you advise I proceed?
