    How cold is too cold? I have seen people post on this forum and others that they always brew
    their ales in the low 60's. However, the While Labs site indicates that the optimal range for
    the 001 is 68...

    Thanks guys (and/or gals)! So would you recommend leaving the temp at 60 or slowly dropping it
