Yesterday I pitched 2 Carboys of Haus' Pale Ale with Safe Ale S-05. Today, the Carboys are at 62-64 degrees. I do have Fermentation going on, but nothing Overly Aggresive. 1 Bubble in the Blow Off Bucket about every 10-15 seconds. I'd like the temp to be at about 68, but I see no harm in them being at this lower temp. It'll take a little longer for Primary to complete, but I have nothing but time. Are their any negatives to being at this lower temp for my Primary Fermentation? I feel that as long as I keep a Vigilant eye on the Temp to insure that it doesn't drop below 62 degrees, I should be good.

I almost always use S05 at 60 degrees. No problems, actually a cleaner beer with fewer esters. Does take awhile to ferment out completely. Usually 12 days as opposed to 7, but I very seldom use a secondary vessel, so it is of little concern to me.

I agree with scout, you may be pleasantly surprised. I'd let it be.

Is that the temperature inside the carboys or the ambient temperature? The temperature of the wort will usually be 3 to 5 degrees higher than ambient.
