I use dry yeast. I try to keep around 68-70 degrees on the liquid thermometer. Is this to warm or will it be good??

Yooper do you find it to produce a crisper cleaner beer fermenting WLP001 at the lower temps ?

Yes, it seems to be cleaner at lower temperatures, more so than S05 (which I think gets "peachy" at 64 degrees).

If it's at 70 degrees, that's pretty good for S05 yeast. For S04 or nottingham, I'd either ferment cooler or not use them. They both seem to get poor flavor results over about 67 degrees.

So I have a question pertaining to this thread. I'm doing a banana beer for my wife similar to wells and its a hefe yeast. I was told to ferment at 72-75 to get the banana flavor out of it. So I was keeping it warm and during the first 24 hours it got up to 77 or so and was very vigorous. It has been steady for 3 days now around 74 just wondering if being so high to start will give any off flavors. It was only that warm for a couple hours until I got it to cool down a few degrees.

Too hot. Banana like flavors will be in it. Or bubblegum. The yeast excretes fusel alcohols and make it fruity tasting. Need 65 degrees. One beer I made was almost undrinkable. Air condition crapped out and beer got to 80 degrees. That's the only beer I have had taste like that.

I have not done a beer this warm before so I'm not speaking from experience but on the wyeast website it says wheat beer can be fermented up to 85 degrees

Depends on which wheat yeast. Not all wheat yeast has a range up that high.
