Default Conditioning in the 70's

Fahrenheit, not the decade. I took my most recent AG APA indoors after about 5 days in the 60's and it's a steady 73-75 inside.

Good move, or bad move?

Will condition a little faster, but shouldn't be detrimental.

So the standard 1-2-3 could be 1-1-3 or keep with 1-2-3 with the higher temps, or put it back out in the cold?

For ales it's important to control the fermentation temperature to reduce the creation of esters and fusel alcohols. After the main fermentation is over, it's probably a good idea to increase the temperature to 70/75 to complete fermentation and provide a diecetyl rest.
