Fermenting temp issue

I brewed aqn English brown ale using wyeast 1450. My o.g. was 1.075. After 2 weeks in the primary I transferred to my secondary and the reading was 1.032. I thought that was a little high so I moved the secondary to a warmer area. the temp went from 62 to 72 and the fermentation took off again. Is the beer going to have any off flavors due to the temp increase?

Off-flavors aren’t likely in this situation. Next time though, make sure that the beer has reached terminal gravity before transferring it off the yeast cake - the yeast will tell you when they’re done and that might not match the schedule you’re trying to follow.
