Default Kolsch yeast from wyeast.

I have read wyeasts description and specs on this strain but i have a question or two.
I am fermenting primary at cool basment temps(65-70 degrees F). I understand this is an ale yeast but style wise should i put the secondary in my keg fridge for aging or should I leave it in the basment temps?

Hmm... I just tossed about 1.8 L of Wyeast Kolsch yeast starter into my wort 15 min ago. I'm going to start off fermenting about 65 deg F and turn it down about 55 once it gets going. You might want to read this discussion:Realbeer Kolsch discussion.

When I go to secondary I'm going to turn my temperature controller down to about 32 F but I figure my fermentation chiller (a modified dorm fridge) will only get it down to about 45 F or so.
