That is true. I found it out the hard way. I had a Czech pils going and used dry yeast. One of my Brothers Professors said that a true pils needs to be fermenting at abotu 55 degrees so we put it in the fridge and got the temp to 54. Let it sit for 2 days and nothing, call the LHBS guy and he said yes it is true that it needs to ferment at 55 degrees if it is a liquid yeast. dry ones still ferment around 69 to 70.
