Default I know it's not ruined but...

Pitched yeast too warm. Misread thermometer and ended up pitching S05 into my IPA at 85 degrees. I've got the fermenter soaking in an inch of ice water to try and get it down before fermentation starts.

Am I going about this right?

Draped a towel around it and put a fan on low to bring the temp down. Google swamp cooler. The yeast is fine but if it takes off at that temp you're gonna have off flavors

If you can get it below 70F within the first 8-10 hours, particularly prior to kraeusen, you'll be alright. Did you pitch dry or rehydrate?

Dry. I'm guessing that is in my favor?

Thanks, guys, I was guessing I was fine as long I got the temp down prior to fermentation taking off but wanted to make sure I was correct. Fan and wet towel are now in place.

I try to chill down to around 66F for the average ale yeast. Sometimes lower,like 62-64F if I want it cleaner & the yeasts' temp range can tolerate it.

Yeah, even when I thought it was 75, I was thinking I was in the high side. But with dry yeast and an ambient temp if 65 degrees, I thought I'd be alright. But 85...yikes...
