Colder fermenting yeasts

Do I keep the wort at 70 until it starts fermenting, then chill? Or do I want to chill it down to the 50’s before pitching?


chill the beer down a degree or two below fermentation temp before you pitch the yeast.


If you leave it at a warmer temp, it will start fermenting about 15 minutes after you leave for work. Thus will be warm/hot for ~9 hours, depending on commute time.

Like Sonex said, start and keep it cool.
