You'll want to have it ferment within the temperature range of the yeast. IME, going on the lower half of that range will [very often] give you a better brew in glass. Remember, in England, fermenting in the 55-65F range is pretty common. Fermenting too warm/hot can produce off flavors that will make the batch less than it could have been. What yeast did the kit come with??

Good advice...

Also the lower temperature tends to control the krausen formation, keeping it from causing blow outs. I use Nottingham and when it gets to the higher temps it can get volcanic.
