well when i pitched my yeast the wort was still way too hot. my buddies wife came home from work early, and i didnt want 5.5 gallons of hot wort sitting on her kitchen counter. so after a day or so of no activity, i purchased another packet of us05, and pitched it into the carboy, the temp was about 68 degrees, kept it in the swamp cooler, and maintained a temp of 68 degrees. weeeeeellllllll let me tell you about the fermentation, it went off like a bat outta hell, and proceeded to clog up the airlock, so i put a blow off tube, i think i didnt kill the first batch of yeast, but just kinda shocked it, so when its buddies came to party, it was a blast.
i tasted it, and it tastes really good, you know, for being warm and flat,lol. ill keep you guys posted
