Trying to get a little more time in my bulk ferment

Will using less leaven mean more time to bulk ferment?

Hi,

It seems like since summer is hear (Pennsylvania) my Tartine Country Bread is bulk fermenting (overnight) a bit too fast for me.

So my solution I am thinking is cooling down the water to around 35° and using a bit less leaven..........175 grams instead of 200 grams.

I know cooling down the water gets me more time but not sure what happens when I use a bit less leaven.

Thanks for your answers!
