Fermenting nicely at 68F. Expectations growing!

I noticed that the fermentation temperatures listed 62 degrees. Would fermenting a bit higher, say 68 degrees be OK? I just have my bath tub, and wonderful PNW temperatures.

Excited to brew this, just got back from a family reunion in WI and really enjoyed this beer.

Yes, but then I'd use a "cleaner" yeast strain, say S05 or Wyeast 1056 or WLP001 (same strain, as far as I can tell).

So London ESB, etc, require sub 65 temperatures, or they will provide off flavors?

Not "off-flavors", but instead a distinct English-y fruity ester character, depending on strain.

Interesting, would the S05 or Wyeast 1056 strains cause a end product that is much different?

Yes, it would be "cleaner" and without yeast character.

Thanks to the OP for the recipe! Cheers.

I'm going to brew an 11 gal batch this weekend, splitting into 2 fermenters with different yeasts. My yeast type will be based on what my LBS has in stock. I'll update once I know what I'm using.

Brewed 11 gal yesterday. Over shot my OG by 5 points (1.056). Split the batch using Nottingham and S04. I'm a rookie brewer so I wanted to take this opportunity to see the difference in the two yeasts.

I don't think you'll notice much difference between the nottingham and the S04, as they are very similar.
