This was brewed at the height of the Australian summer (January, 2004). The temperature in the garage did not drop below 77 deg F during primary fermentation (peaked at 85 deg F). The outside temperature was over 100 deg F during the daylight hours. Thus, the short primary fermentation. Will certainly need longer during other times, in other countries.
