I switched to WLP029 and have found it to ferment fast with cool temps. I ferment it at around 16 C - 17 C in my ferment chamber. I do think you need a fermenting chamber to keep it at that temp. When fermentation starts to slow down, I take it out and toss it on the bench to finish so I can go ahead and brew another beer. I make a larger starter with this beer as I sometimes ferment it cooler than White Labs says.
Do you step up a starter or just make say a 4l starter from scratch? Also why do you need more yeast at cooler temps is just so that you don't have to wait forever to get your FG?
