I don't honestly know - I've never fermented it that high. My guess is that 70-72 (wort temp, not ambient) should be fine. Let us know how it comes out!

Never used this yeast but thinking about using it for (my first) American Wheat/WPA. Stole the malt bill and hop schedule (adding Amarillo) from the Lemon-Lime Hef on the recipe forum...erased the lime ade

55% 2 Row
35% White Wheat
10% Vienna
Amarillo @ FWH and 60 min
Motueka @ 40 and 20 min
Sorachi @ 20 and 5 min
Possibly some fruit zest @ 5 min
small amount combination of the 3 hops at flameout (or perhaps a short dry hop)
Total IBUs 30...IBU/GU .52...3-SRM

Would this yeast work well with this type of brew guys??? What would be a good mash temp and fermentation temp. I was thinking 152-154F mash and a 68F ferment???

I love WLP001 and 002, just ready for something different. At a glance, it sounds like the fruitiness and added body would be good for this brew.
