I would have left it in the mid 60s shed. No biggie either way, since most ferm. is done. I have a carboy full of blonde ale sitting on my front steps, which is insulated but not heated. Has ranged from 45-65*F active ferm was a week of steady 60* temps, then it kind of went up a tad, and now it is getting a little chilly, especially at night. I wont be moving it at all until bottling time.
I am expecting it to turn out very well... so I expect yours to as well (as long as all other brewing elements are in order!)

mid 60's should be perfect temp shouldn't it?
Thats what I thought (although i'm new here) with a good number of ale yeasts wanting to be in 65-68 isn't 63-65 room/air temp where you want to be since the fermenting temp will be 2-5 degrees higher? Isn't 70's too warm for ambient temp? (unless it is meant for that temp of course)

It wasnt really the 63 degrees i was worried about it was the drop down to 60 at night and then the rise to the low 70s in the morning to afternoon. Im content with under the bar. Its 70 degrees there 24/7. Im gonna cold crash in a week or so, then bottle. 3 weeks from then Ill come back and let you know lol
