I was just wondering what the temperature would be for a bimac. Are they cold water species or warm water species?

We usually keep our bimacs at about 22-25 C which is ambient room temperature which requires no chiller or heater either way with success.

Would be interesting to compare the lifespan of the various groups of bimacs kept at different temperatures.

Here are the conversions for the rest of you:
15 degrees C = 59 degrees F
20 degrees C = 68 degrees F
22 degrees C = 71.6 degrees F
25 degrees C = 77 degrees F

We're recommending 72 degrees or below, but some have kept them at room temperature, like Greg says.
