I like to ramp up my ales to 68-70F with a fermwrap in the winter when my cellar's ambient temp dips into the upper 50's to low 60's. Helps the beer finish properly.

I pitched an entire additional fresh slurry of 001 my last high gravity ferment (1.106) when the brew got below 1.050 as insurance. It was below 1.010 at the final reading.

Just chugged along and took about 2 weeks at 70-ish temps.
