Default 3711 max temp

What's the max temp you would let this yeast rise to? I know with 3724 you basically can let it go to whatever temp it wants, but I think 3711 is a little more sensitive to heat. I would like to start at 68 and let it go, ambient of 78-79 so it would definitely end up in the 80s, what do you guys think?

I usually do about the same. I start it in the mid 60's and let it go. If you start it low it works just fine at those temps. It can handle higher temp than Wyeast has listed.
