As low as 15 degrees and as high as 35 I have gone in the past.
I have zero temp control so I just mix it up and let it go.

What Sam said! Gudday RD,

temperatures are often dictated by the yeast you use....

Normally you would top up to the 25l mark but don’t worry it’ll be fine

Alcometer is for spirits. Hydrometer for wash. If its on .094 and stays there for few consecutive days its done :handgestures-thumbupleft:
