Default carbonate temps

OK... I have just bottled after three weeks in a primary bucket in the low-mid 60's... now to wait a couple of weeks for carbonation... I am tempted to move them to a warmer spot to allow for carbonation but I hesitate because I fear that rise in temperature... any thoughts? now that it is in the bottle is it safe to warm it up a bit or shall I leave it in the low-mid 60's to carb... ?

More them somewhere warmer than low 60's. About 70 or so is good. They will carb in the low 60's, but it will take longer.A little warmer won't hurt at all.

From what I've seen, you WANT to raise your bottles up to 70-72* for carbonation.

When seaching around this site for that same answer, most people quoted or linked to this: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/bott...ebrewer-94812/

You COULD leave them cooler, but just know that it will take longer to carb and waiting is hard enough! (as I still have yet to crack into my 1st batch)
