Light Bulb

I agree with Brewers Ody. You will find the recommended temperatures on the yeast package. In reference to beer not liking light, thats correct.

The basement floor is about 10 ft.below outside ground surface so I,m really ...

While waiting for the temp. to rise I started to page through my BYO magazine and got carried away. When I checked the mash it had reached 200*F. ...
