Default ferm temp for wyeast 1272

i'm brewing a black IPA from a norther brewer extract kit. the recipe instructions say to ferment from 60-72 degrees. i just bought a johnson temp. controller and was wanting to control my fermentations a little better. any suggestions on what temp to ferment at? or what will be the difference in the finished beer if i ferment closer to 72 as opposed to 60?

thanks

The lower temp will produce a cleaner beer; the higher temp will bring out more of the yeast's esters. If it were me, I would target 66-68F. Keep in mind that a temp strip stuck to the side of the carboy may read 68, but the inside (during active fermentation) will likely be higher from all that activity (by at least 2 degrees).

I aim for the low to mid sixties and have not been disappointed with any of my brews so far.

Haven't used 1272 though.

just brewed that NB Black IPA kit, but used Wyeast 1056. I kinda wish I had accelerated the grain-to-glass time, as the best hop flavor I got was from the 1st under-carb'ed bottle at 5 weeks (3 in primary, 2 in bottles). With that in mind, I'd start 1056 or 1272 around 66* and bump it up a couple as ferm slows to finish the beer quicker.

The NB IBA is a fantastic kit.

My favorite yeast. It gets estery towards the top end. Ideally, I try to balance in the middle for clean, yet flavorfull character of the yeast. 66ish is perfect to start it out, let it rise to 68, to finish out.
