I may be violently corrected for this but I believe that fermentation temps really don't matter too much after the first 4 or 5 days of fermentation. That is when the yeast will produce most of the esters involved with the "fermentation flavors". Later on increasing the fermentation temps will just help the yeast stay active and finish the job of converting the sugars to alcohol.

If I'm wrong .... well, we will hear about it!
