I just did an am. wheat with 2565. Not bottled yet but hydro sample tasted awesome! Fermented in basement which has been appx 55 deg ambient.

Cool...what's your fermentation schedule? How many weeks in basement before you'll bottle?

Its been 3 weeks in basement ill probly bottle it whenever I get a chance. Considered moving it upstairs for a few days (warmer) just to give the yeasties a chance to clean up, but judging by the taste I dont think its really necessary.

It'll take a while at 55F, but it will finish up. I would recommend moving it upstairs or not depending upon your available time to bottle. Regardless, a week or so as cold as you can get it prior to bottling would be good, to get as much of the yeast to settle as possible.
