Default 2.5 gallons from boiling to 80F instantly, 80F to 65F after 10 hours... re-aerate?

I have 5.5 gallons total in the carboy for primary, but the water I added wasn't as cold as I thought it was going to be. I should have had it cooling for longer, because after dumping my wort in, it was 80F. Waiting to pitch my Nottingham at 65F.

That was last night. Now this morning after 10 hours it is 68F. I gave it good aeration in the carboy last night at 80F.

Q: Should I re-aerate now or just pitch?

Just pitch, it will be fine. 80F isn't too bad for pitching as long as you know the temp is going to come down fairly quickly. Main thing is to get the yeast in there quickly so they can take over from any baddies that may have gotten in during the wait.

So it's still plenty oxygenated? Great. Heading over to sprinkle on the Nottingham - it's at 67F.
