Default Over-zealous wort chilling :-(

Hi, I chilled my wort for an extract brew, mixed it with three gallons of ice cold water and it was very cold, I pitched... that was 24 hours ago. tody after work (20 hours after pitching) the temp was 65f, im using white labs thats good between 65-70, should I try to raise the temp a bit to get it started?

im using the white labs wlp011, from their site:

Attenuation: 65-70%
Flocculation: Medium
Ideal Fermentation Temperature Range: 65-70F


should I try to get it up to 70?

thanks!

It'll help a bit if you raise the temp but you should be okay. I had this exact same problem on my last brew, I think I ended up pitching at 65 - 67 deg and I had activity within 24 hours or so, also using white labs although I did use a starter.
