That way you introduce a variable that is hard to control: the rate of cooling.
That's why i want to work at whatever the thermometer says (currently 14 C).
The alternative would be trying to keep the temperature up for an hour or so. Not having a heated, controlled water bath, i'd rather not.

It would appear that 14 C is not a problem, perhaps even a boon. So i'll go with that.

I will warm up the fixer though. Shouldn't be a problem, since that doesn't need to be kept at temperature for that long.
