I have 6 gallons of Munich Dunkel moving along in my conical. Currently, it's sitting on my back porch, because it's cold outside, and I'm worried the garage would be too warm for this yeast. I have an iSpindel floating in it, and also have a thermowell about 2" above the cone, where I have my InkBird thermostat probe. I have this connected to a heating mat wrapped around the conical. I've noticed a pretty large variant in the temperature in the vessel - for instance, right now the thermostat is reading 42.5, while the iSpindel is showing 48. Should I set the thermostat to a lower temperature (around 45) to try to attain ~50F at the iSpindel, should I set the thermostat for 50 and let the top of the wort be warmer, or should I shoot for somewhere in the middle?
