Yesterday i bottled my first brew. I put the bottles in a box in my room. There is a thermometer inside the box, it reads 25°C. I've read before that the it should be in 18°C - 24°C range.
Will 25°C affect taste and/or flavor? Although i believe i gave enough room for CO2, i don't want to have bottle bombs.
What can i do to lower the temperature? I thought about putting the bottles in a bucket and filling the bucket with cold tap water. Will this work? Do you have any other ideas?
I brewed a Mr. Beer Aztec Mexican Cerveza. The fermentation temperature was around 23°C.
