Hello Spark,
The maximum heat possible is the calorific content of the medium. Most 
bacteria are not very efficient so will probably waste up to 50% of the 
calorific content, even more if operating anaerobically. Most of this 
goes off as heat so -  getting a ball park estimate should not be too 
difficult.

Best wishes,
Peter
