Default Fermentation Temp.

My first week of fermentation is over and my gravity his holding steady at 1.010. I fermented between 64 and 66 degrees. Do I need to keep the same temp for the rest of my fermentation or can it be a bit warmer?

up to 70 - 72 will be fine after the first 72 hours.

A lot of people raise the temp gradually after the initial fermentation phase is over, which it sounds like yours is. The first few days of fermentation are most important.. after that, raising the temp a bit is just fine, and sometimes helps finish the fermentation quicker.

1.010 is pretty dry, raising the temp a few degrees will help with clean-up, probably 3-4 days, then if you can cool it (less than 40F) it will really clear nicely.....of course it will clear warmer but it takes longer.

I usually raise the temp a few degrees after fermentation is over to allow the yeast to clean up (diecetyl rest).
