Nice and safe in this sanitized bucket, I wait until it gets to 70 degrees.  
I have a wort chiller, and I know aficionados will disagree with me, but after 22 years making beer, this works just fine, don’t worry.
I will pitch yeast in the morning.  Now I have to clean up before family gets unsettled…ahem…

Update: The wort cooled nicely overnight to a perfect 70 degrees.  Right on the back porch in its bucket.  I just took a hydrometer reading and it was at 1.042, just in the range of a British Bitter.
