Default Bottled first batch, bottling at 66 degrees?

Make a wheat ale, fermented for 3 weeks at 66 degrees, OG and FG are exactly what the directions called for. OG was stable for a few days.

Bottled and put right back into same place where fermented, stays a steady 66 degrees.

This too cold for bottling? or will it just take longer? Should I take it to a warmer place for awhile?

Did a search and found too much info, but not for a wheat ale.

After fermentation, it really doesn't matter what the exact temp is. You want to store it at a stable cool temp out of direct sunlight.

it'll just take a bit longer. three weeks at 70 degrees is the general rule, so expect a little longer, maybe a month or so. my bottles almost always sit at 66-67 and i find my beer's ready to go in around 5 weeks in most cases.

Thanks for the tips. Will just keep them at the steady 66 and let them sit 5 weeks or so.
They sit in case with with lid closed so no light gets in.

Thanks again. Looking forward to 5 weeks. Time to start the next batch
