Whenever you start printing with a new material, you should definitely figure out the best temperature for it. Many times it will be the hit and miss approach, but if you want to really dial in your prints, try printing a Temp Tower. This is a tower of blocks that will print at different temperatures. A standard block will have about 9 different temperatures in 5 degree increments.

Here is a video that shows what they are and how to create one from an STL that you can get from Thingiverse.

You can also download the creator's gcode which requires no modifications, but doing it the right way will be optimized for your particular printer. NOTE: once you create a Temp Tower gcode for your particular printer, you can use it for EVERY material on that printer. So hold onto it.

Here are some links to the two temp towers in the video.
