Fermenting with Imperial A20 Citrus

I’m brewing Zombie Dust tomorrow morning and have a starter of Imperial A20 spinning right now. My question is can I really ferment this beer straight out of the gate at 80 degrees? Temp range says 67 - 80. I’d really like the citrus/ tropical fruit esters from the high fermentation temp but my experience with literally all other yeast strains is to start low for the first 72 hours and them ramp up temperatures.

What if you start at 70… it’ll heat up more as it ferments…? I’d be leary to start at its top end… it’ll heat up…? Sneezles61

Yes you can ferment this warmer. It’s equivalent to white labs 644 that used to be labeled as a Brett strain. DNA testing has proven it to be saccharomyces.

I think that’s what I’ll do @sneezles61. Just defies my experience to ferment that hot! What’s next… A saison??
