Default Kolsch frementing Temps

I am fermenting a Kolsch at 63 degrees F for 8 days in the primary, after air lock activity slowed and krausen fell, I racked to the secondary today. The yeast used was While Labs German Ale Kolsch yeast (WLP029). What temperature do you recommend I keep the secondary at? Should I store it in a refrigerator?

Steve

I would keep it in the secondary for another 7 days, Then cold condition at about 38-40 for 3 weeks. It should clear very well and atttenuate in the high70%. I usually leave my in the primary for at laest two weeks. and then rack to the keg. Jamil says to let the yeast do it's thing in the primary.

Thanks. The reason I asked the question was that I seemed to find many different protocols when I researched this.
