Optimal temps

So to this point i’ve used mainly us-05 and 1056 which have a range from around 60f to low 70’s. I’ll pitch once the carboy is around 62…and it’ll increase during active ferm to around 68.

Looking at wlp007, the optimal is 68-75. Would it be appropriate to pitch in wort that is around 64 and allow the bugs to increase temps to the 68-70 range?

That seems reasonable to me. I always try to shoot for the lower end of the range and then when fermentation slows, raise it to the upper limit to squeak out the last couple of points.
