I wasn't able to cool down the wort well enough and pitched WLP001 at 85°F (29.5°C) (I know, what a failure...) My home is 82°F (28°C) indoors and the water comes out of the faucet at that temp too. Ran out of ice in the fridge and it was a bad day... Fortunately, I got the temperature down to 75 degrees within the first hour and a half.
Anyways, I was originally planning on washing the yeast to reuse after racking this beer to a secondary. If it was pitched too high, would I still be able to wash and reuse it?
Thanks for your help!
