I have a Bock that was in my primary for two weeks and has now been in my secondary for five. I was originally planning on leaving it in for at least a few more weeks, but have noticed the temperature in my basement garage has been creeping upwards from the lower 50's, apporaching 60 degrees a few days ago. I'm wondering if becuase of this I should just go ahead and bottle now. This is my first lager so I'm not sure how much the temperature change will effect my final product. Any thoughts?

what is the gravity,
if it's done fermenting @50f-ish, it's time to start lagering @ as close to 33f as you can get for a good long time

if it's done fermenting ...you don't have to woory as much about temp rise, because most off-flavors are produced when its fermenting
