I've had my kit in the primary for 2 weeks. I haven't checked the gravity yet, but plan to in 2 days and rack and degass. The fermenter has been sitting at 64-67 degress the whole time. I heard that it should be warmer than that to get addequate co2 release. Should I put a brew belt on it for a few days and raise the temp before I degass or what?

Thanks

YES. Heck it wouldn't have hurt to put the brew belt on the primary already. My wines are at that temp and I am planning to get a heater for the room (cheaper than half a dozen brew belts).
