I brewed the Chinook IPA last week and the temperature in my fermenting cabinent was right around 60 degrees, sometimes lower. I tried a heating pad; but could not significantly raise the temperature. I did not see any bubbles in the air lock; but did notice that there was some movement in the levels of the water. The water in the airlock has since leveled out.
Is this too cold for fermentation to take place? I was planning on moving to the secondary fermenter at the 3 week mark. Any advice on how to ensure that fermentation is taking place would be greatly appreciated.
