    Yes, each yeast strain has it's own temperature preferences. Generally though, lager yeasts like a cold ferment. Ale and wine yeasts like a cool to medium ferment temp and others like Kveik like it hot.

    Does the yeast also add anything to the taste? It sure smells bad, well some of them once they start doing their thing hehehe

    Different fermentation temperatures would allow/deny the yeast to throw esters/different esters. 34/70 at higher (but still within range) temps does a very clean lager fairly fast. Water also has an effect on your yeasts fermentation

    In addition to reading the links above, yes, yeast adds something. Some yeasts add a lot of taste, others very little to none. Depends on the beer and therefore the yeast style.

    For example, you're going to be a bit disappointed when you're brewing a Belgian Trappist beer using a lager yeast at 11C, and you're going to be properly surprised when you use a Lambic yeast to ferment your sweet stout.

    Here's a little chart where you can flip through a lot of yeasts and get an idea of different flavours and fermentation styles (https://byo.com/resource/yeast/?beer...-submit=Submit)

    Thanks for all the info and liks to very good info, much appreciated.

    It will take me long to work through those, so I will try and find a source for the audiobooks hehehe
