though. You aint getting enough heat to get the yeast going. If your
in a cold region you may have to go as far as putting the fermenter in
a water bath that has a decent aquarium heater in it to maintain temp.
Wrapping the fermenter with an electric blanket would help if you
have one. Anything to insulate it. I have been using a Stainless
stock pot for the fermenter for the last few washes with a heating pad
under it and it is working well. but then I ferment in a closet in the
house that even without applying heat keeps the wash at 66F. That the
temp it is clearing at now.
