Steam Beer Ferment Temp.

What is the recommended temperature for fermenting a Steam Beer?
 I seem to recall a 75 degree temp but can't find the reference
I had to it.

TIA,

Dave

From the Wyeast fact sheet:

  2112 California lager yeast
        Particularly suited for producing 19th century style West Coast beers.
        Retains lager characteristics at temperatures up to 65oF, and produces
        malty, brilliantly-clear beers. Flocculation - high; apparent
        attenuation - 67-71%. (58-68oF)

around 72 deg (using Wyeast 2112).  I was very concerned about the high
temps, but the beer is dynamite.  I did a lousy job of trub removal, I'd
like better head retention, I shoulda tossed in a skosh of toasted
barley, I have the worst chill haze you've ever seen.  But the beer
tastes great.  Did a side-by-side tasting w/ Anchor Steam and I pat
myself on the back.

Gonna brew this again when the weather will allow me to get to more
appropriate temps.

60-65^F is the best temperature range for this yeast.  This is slightly
below ale fermentation temperatures.  In the winter, my ba***t is
typically around this temperature.

Dave,
     I would recommend 60-65F.  Certainly no higher.
