Oh boy. Cool that puppy down to more reasonable temps of about 16c.

You could have left out the sugar and added more DME to make a better beer, but
you will make beer with what you have got. Do some reading WWW.Howtobrew.com should get you better beer

Sure, you could do that. You could get a higher alcohol volume by adding sugar. Or, you could make a better quality beer that has great taste and ditch the sugar completely, and the yeast that came with the kit, and replace with dry malt extract and better yeast.

Each of us brews for different reasons, and some of us brew for excellent quality that you can't get in a store, and some brew for a cheap high ABV beer. That's probably why you'll get such differing opinions!

Your beer will turn out good, and you will find out how to make it better.
