Default Apfelwein Fermentation Temp

I know EdWort's Recipe says that I can ferment at room temp. Well, I have a fermentation fridge set at about 68 that I have been fermenting for about a week. My next brew is going to be a Kolsch which obviously needs to ferment at lower temps. I assume I shouldn't leave my Apflewein in the fermentation fridge at these low temps, so I'm probably going to take it out and put it in a closet. Now the room temp is about 78 degrees, and I really don't want to mess around with putting it in a swamp cooler. Do you all think 78 is to warm to keep the apfelwein at? If it's ok, should I gradually raise the temp of my fermentation fridge up to the upper 70's to help with the transition?
