Default So just had to pitch my yeast into my starter at 100 degrees...

Had no choice as I had to be somewhere and was already 45 min. late. So how's that going to turn out for me...?

Bad news is it will probably die.... good news is you can repitch with no issues.

Good luck with that. I think it will work ( Maybe) but oh man I bet it will taste funny.

Yes I have tried and gagged the corny beer down LOL

Wrong. Yeast is ultra-happy at that temp.

But they will throw all sorts of esters that might result in fruity beer.

So if that's the case with the starter will that ester flavor carrry over to my batch when I pitch it tomorrow, or will it mellow out when pitched at 68 degrees?

Time will help in the fermenter and leave it bottled for a good long time. Saying that though I never got rid of it but then I drank it fast to get rid of it.

I would rather see a church burn rather than waste a beer so man up and drink it LOL

Disclaimer here. It is a saying I really would not want to see a church burn.

Throw the fermenter outside or in the garage ASAP and and then do what you gotta do.
When you get back monitor the situation,Hope for the best or go to plan 2.

Cheers

Obviously not a good situation but it is a pretty easy fix. If you pitched it at 100 F. put it into a cool water bath while you are gone. You might also get away with just putting it in the fridge. It will take awhile for the starter to get down to 70 degrees. The mistake is pitching at 100 degrees and then just leave.
