I do not think you are going to get what you are expecting but also do not think it will be a bad beer, definitely not bad enough to toss out. Reducing the temperature during active fermentation could make the yeast slow down. Try to keep the temperature stable until fermentation is complete. Even if there are some off flavors after bottling/kegging and carbonation, they may dissipate with a little aging.

I'll do a sg today. The pack says to bottle once sg is same after two days, can I confirm where in earlier posts I was advised to leave for another couple of weeks to remove any nastys given of in fermentation at such high temps. Is that recommended even if the sg is the same over two days or am I best to bottle as soon as I have the same sg?
Thanks everyone!

you can bottle when you have a stable gravity but not because you must do it that way. if you wait another week it won't matter either way. just to be clear, if you really did have a hot ferment that created fusel alcohols they will not age out.

I had an imperial stout get up to 85F for at least a day-when it got to FG it tasted more like kerosene than beer, but after three more weeks in primary it was smooth as mama's milk.

Also S05 can finish the initial ferment quickly. Just because it's done bubbling after a few days doesn't mean it's done. I've had it stop bubbling after 2-3 days, then I give it 2-3 weeks in primary before I do anything.
