NB Surly Furious Ferm Temp?
 
I'm using WLP007 to ferment this, and I am unsure what temperature I should target. I live in MI and haven't had this beer before, so I don't know the yeast character.

I have a dedicated chest freezer for fermentation, and can control temps rather well. White Labs suggests 65-70 for this yeast, and I'm thinking I'd like to target the low end of the range. Does anyone who's had this beer have any input for me?

Thanks!

I think your in the right direction with the 007. I would start at 65 ramp it to 67 towards end of fermentation.
Just had this for the first time and what a treat. Not as big as Heady topper but i great smooth drinking for sure. Love those tropical tones

Thanks. This was exactly my plan.

Any other thoughts? Doughing in within the hour.

I start even lower..60. But that's just me.

Thanks. I decided to split the difference and set the ferm chamber for 62.
