Default What Temp Should I Ferment Danstar Munich at??

Alright, I'm going to be making an Americanish Wheat beer soon and I'm trying out Danstars Munich. Should I ferment at room temp (74*ish) like other wheat yeasts or should I keep it cool at around 63*?

Thanks,
Jacob

This says "above 17^C".

I would start at about 63 and step it up one degree a day for a week.

Sounds good to me.

FWIW Jacob, I ferment with WL380 for my bavarian style wheats and use 62 degrees. Better balance of flavor, IMO.

Try it cool sometime, see if you like it.

Well, I typically just ferment my Belgian's at room temp, which in my house is around 73-75*F, but for an American Wheat, a more neutral flavor is great. Whichever way I decide to go (probably on the lower side), I'm sure it will turn out great.

Thanks for the advice,
Jacob
