When I started brewing I jumped right in to kegging. 5 days ago I bottled my first batch (Porter). Since they have been conditioning in the bottle I've set them at room temp which ranges from 71-76. Is this ok?....or to high? I've noticed a nice bit of sediment at the bottom of each bottle. Is that good at this stage?

They are fine for carbonating in the short term. I wouldn't keep them at that temp for long term storage.

Sediment is normal. Those are fine temps for carbonating. Long term storage is better at cellar temps, like 50.
