Brewed up a 1.082 christmas ale this past saturday. It fermented like crazy in my ferm chamber (sitting between 65 and 68f the whole time). The chamber is in my garage, and even though we've had some nights in the low 40s here, the temp stayed pretty steady. Airlock/blow off activity has slowed as of last night and this morning I saw that temps are hovering around 59-60 degrees in my chamber. I have a heat belt I could use, but I wanted to see if you guys knew about this yeast and how it reacts in 58-62 degree situations. Should I ride it out or strap on the heat belt? TIA.

Ive used this yeast twice both in the low 60's both came out with a clean profile. My beers were in the 1.050's though...

I'm thinking that since I pitched on Saturday night (and had activity w/in 3 hours), its had nearly 4 days at prime temps, and it should be fine. Just don't want to ruin it. Planning on gifting a few bottles for Christmas.
