Yeast is happiest in a range set by the manufacturer
Within that range, flavors from that yeast in different recipes can be influenced by where in the range you ferment at.
What yeast are we talking about here? What is the beer being brewed?
What is the temp of the wort now? And are you talking about wort temp? or ambient air temp?
