Hey guys I did my first wheat beer last night All grain. Very pumped! I used the Safbrew WB-06 because I wanted to go straight wheat style. It says to ferment at 59-75 degrees. Is there any problem if i ferment in the mid to low 50's? Or is that too cold for that yeast?

I wouldnt recommend it. it may be too cold for the yeast and put alot to sleep, plus the ester profile would be entirely different than it is meant to be

Yup, too cold. Keep it around 65-70F. I've fermented it up to 78F with good results.
