Default Fermentation temperature dropped to 58

I was trying to ferment my pumpkin ale at 67 degrees, and my temp controller got unplugged sometime between pitching the yeast (at 70) on Wednesday and today, and now is down to 59 degrees.

Should I just plug it back in and get to 67, slowly ramp it back up, pitch more yeast, ferment longer?

Yeast can generally go down in temp much better than up. I'd slowly warm that - put in a 70F room and let it get to about room temp naturally. You shouldn't need more yeast to ferment, although it probably will take longer

Yeah you're fine. Controller back in, ramp up to 64 over the next 3 days.
