Default Temperature question

Hello home brew world. First brew nut brown ale true Brew kit has been in fermenter four days and I have been keeping it at 70 degrees F. I plan on keeping it in fermenter at least three weeks. Is it necessary for me to keep it below the normal room temp. of 81 degrees F. The whole month?

Generally speaking you should keep it at the desired fermentation temp until the beer has fermented out. Take a gravity reading periodically after the first week and wait for stability in the readings. I would say exposing it to higher temps after fermentation is done won't change the taste after all many beers are heat pasteurized. But you should strive for temps consistant with the guidelines for your yeast and beer.
