Brewing a northern brewer kit and I'm getting conflicting info on the yeast. I'm using wyeast bier d grd, #3725, going to smack it this evening for use in about 20 hours....my conflict is with the temps, the recipe says to lager, wyeast says much higher...
Wyeast 3725 PC

Bière de Chute - Extract Kit
OG: 1061 / Ready: 7 weeks
A Belgian Oktoberfest... you must be joking!? Nope! This biere de garde (or more aptly, "Beer of Fall") reaches back into history to draw out great complexity and depth from a simple bill of ingredients. Straddling the line between a lager and an ale, this beer combines the best of both worlds with restrained fruity esters and a smooth lager-like character. A fusion of toasty, bready, and nutty malt flavors with spicy yeast and peppery alcohol make Bière de Chute readily drinkable and utterly dangerous. Prost à Français!
Primary fermantation: 66°-69°F, approx. 1 week
Secondary fermentation: 32°-34°F, 3-4 weeks
won't I kill the yeast???
