I have a batch of california common I am fermenting. OG came in at 1.058 on 1/18/12. Had it fermenting at about 55 degrees until 1/24/12 but came in this morning and the cooler had dropped to 34 degrees. So, should I take it out and leave at room temp, here it is about 68 degrees, or leave in the cooler and raise the temp back up in there to the fifties? I double pitched the WLP810 so I should have had a healthy supply of yeast to start.

What is the gravity reading? If it didn't finish fermenting you need to raise the temps back up to at least the high 40's - low 50's for it to complete.
