According to the specsheet for T-58, it can ferment at between 53.6-77*F.

It goes further to say tha the IDEAL temp range is: 59-68*F.

I think it if were me, I would run at 60-62*F for primary (3-5 days) and then let it warm up to 66-68*F for the remainder of the 21 day fermentation period.

I have used T-58 a lot and can tell you that I have allowed temps to rise into the mid to upper 70's with good results.

The warmer temps really bring out the Belgian charcter in my opinion.

But, since you stated you are doing a BM clone... You might not want all that Belgian goodness and keeping it a little cooler should surpress that a bit.
