Not having any cooling mechanism for my fermenter(s), this time of year I can get more favorable temperatures outside than inside.
I'm specifically talking about ciders in glass containers, but I'm also curious about hopped beer in glass and plastic containers. (hops in glass outside is obviously bad due to UV exposure)
Is there any reason I shouldn't ferment outside, or cold crash outside?
At what time in the fermentation process do I need to worry about temperature swings?
UV exposure for hopped and non-hopped fermentations?
