Default WLP007 finishing temperature

I am currently fermenting for 4 days at 65F and asking myself if I should increase temperature for the last part of the process (1-2 weeks) to makes sure it finish and clean itself.

What do you think?

2-3 degrees F wouldn't hurt...

^ + 1 to this. I usually up the temperature by 1 degree per day starting with the usual signs of high krausen.

I like to do this with all yeasts. After about 3 days, raise the temp 1 degree per day or so, up to room temp.

I do the same. After being at high krausen for a while (typically 48 hours after pitching for me but YMMV) I usually raise 2 degrees F, and I'll raise 2 a degrees every couple days until I'm about 6 degrees F over my initial pitch temp (which should still be in the appropriate zone for the yeast strain)
