Being my very first brew...and from a kit. I worked on just room temperature.....Im in Queensland Australia. So between 24 and 28 degrees Celsius. Which I found out is too high? Kit never stated anything about specific temp. Probably shouldve done some research! How would this affect my beer? Should I then let my beer mature in the bottles at the same temperature range or in the fridge?
High temperature may give you fruity esters, phenols and other substances like that. Probably still better than "eurolager" or other mass-produced beer, but not great for most styles. As long as you stay under 30°C, yeast should do pretty fine and batch should work out to be drinkable.
With your temperatures, I sure hope you like belgian styles, because yeast for them kinda like it hot:
- Wyeast 1388 up to 80F / 28°C
- Wyeast 1214 up to 78F / 26°C
- White Labs WLP550 up to 78F/ 26°C
- Fermentum Mobile FM26 up to 24°C officially, I had good effect even near 28°C
- Mangrove Jack's - Belgian Ale M27 likes it up to 32°C. Might be discontinued as I can't find it on their page now, but still avaliable in the stores.
- and more
As you can see, your temperatures are pretty OK with any style that calls for belgian yeast.
