Finished dough temperature ?


What is the best finished dough temperature after kneading for a long cold fermentation ?

I've just made some dough and got 71.6 F, is it too cold ?

maybe I should have used a warmer water since the weather is very cold today..

25 -27 deg C is recommended by Bruno Albouze in a number of his bread-related videos.
