I have a Saison brewing (actually two) and I hear "slowly raise the temp from 70F to middle 80s".

Whats the time frame on this. It's been fermenting for about 14 hours now and I have it from 70 to about 75 now. Faster? Slower?

Comments?

BTW - the big carboy is using White Labs Belgian Style Saison Ale Blend WLP568 while the smaller one is Safbrew T-58 and I'll add Champagne yeast in maybe another 12 hours!

That is a 55g fish tank heater to slowly raise the temps.

I usually add about 2-3 degrees per day.

The fish tank heater trick works great doesn't it? Very easy to controll temps.
