ARCGGGH!!! Last night, whilst I slept, our thermostat malfunctioned and sent the heat up to like 84 degrees. I was sleeping like a baby for who knows how many hours of this before I woke up with a jolt at 7:30, realizing I had thrown off all my sheets and blankets. Unfortunately, the Mild Ale had reached about 78 degrees! I immediately killed the heat and threw the carboy into a water bath, but I'm worried it's ruined. We shall see...
