I have watched Callebaut Chocolate's You Tube Channel videos instructing about the seeding method of tempering Dark (54%, Recipe 811), Milk (33.6%, Recipe 823 and White (28%, Receipe W2) chocolates using chocolate callets, which worked perfectly for dipping and coating chocolate truffles. Can Callebaut's Dark Bittersweet callets (70.5%, Recipe 70-30-38) be similarly tempered using the seeding method and what would the specific temperature parameters me for the higher percentage of cocoa solids in this recipe, or would it be the same as for the Dark chocolate callets from Recipe 811? Also does the Dark Bittersweet chocolate's low fluidity rating of 2/5 make it significantly less appropriate for dipping and coating compared to Recipe 811's medium fluidity rating of 3/5?

I hope this is he appropriate place to post this questions and look forward to being able to incorporate a higher and additionally healthful dry cocoa solids percentage into our confectionary recipes. Thank you. - R.
