Default yeast question

I see that many people suggest fermenting at low temperature (like 50F?). I also have read here that many people prefer ale yeasts that have optimal temp rages between like 62-70-ish degrees. I would like to use an ale yeast and ferment very low and slow. Any suggestions on a strain and a temp? I would like to stay away from champagne yeast, as I want a lower attenuation and a sweeter cider.

I usually brew my ales at the low range recommended by the yeast manufacter (usually in the 60's). Some have done SA-05 in the 50's. If you want to brew in the 50's do a lager. Most of them are designed for the mid 50 range.

EDIT: Didn't notice I was in the cider forum.....ignore my nonsense.

You can rock out Nottingham or Safale-04 in the upper 50's. Just did it and they turned out great.
