Hello,

I have a batch fermenting with Nottingham dry ale yeast.
The ideal temperature range is 57-70F.

Is it preferable to stay in the low range (such as 57-60) or does it have any noticeable impact? Right now my fermenter is at 66F.

Will I get better results if It's brought down lower?

Your feedback is appreciated!

I stay on the low end all the time simply to because at the high end you can get off flavors.

the flavor character of yeast rises with temperature. it is up to you to determine how much character you want. i like almost every yeast better at the low end
