That yeast is a london ale yeast strain recommended to be fermented around room temperature. Storage temperature is what you keep it at prior to use. You should also probably have made a starter for that yeast to build up the cell count but hopefully you'll be fine, has it started bubbling yet?

Your girlfriends hot.

Another brewer that has outkicked his coverage

Nice looking brew, and it must be nice to drink out of the New Belgium goblet and have to "settle" for New Belgium beers if you are out of homebrew!

she's bubbling! I think it was just too cold at first. the yeast min temp was 64 and it was at 64, its now aroun 68 and starting to foam, and bubbling quite a bit!
