I've been brewing beer for a year and a half and am really enjoying it. Just for fun I started

Thanks guys. I also e-mailed the company that I bought them from just to see what they say
about it. I could also just try it and see what happens. Or maybe replacing them all with the 2

You need to warm it up so the yeast can finish it faster, as well as clean up some byproducts.
You can go as high as 78 on that yeast for "end stage/second stage" fermentation. A warmer room

I'm fermenting 10 gallons of IPA and using WLP 007 yeast. This yeast likes higher temperatures.
I was shooting for 68 degrees, but I have a funky room in my house that stays around 61 to 63
