Alright, I will give not racking it a try.  Right now my O.S.G. is at 1.066 so I am excited to see what it drops to.  Sadly I do not have a way to keep it at 64...I do not have the space for a second fridge in my house just yet (its an eventual dream as I would love to try my hands at lager)

well you can put it in a big tub of water and add ice/frozen bottles of water or drape t-shirt or similar over the fermenter and keep the cloth wet for evaporative cooling effects.

Sadly I do not have the tub space (or the finances for ice) but I can try the wet t-shirt idea.  Right now my beer has gotten to 70 degrees.
