LOL, same thing happened to me with my wort chiller on first use, my fitting came off too. Beer turned out fine. I test all new equipment now before official use.

I wouldn't worry about the yeast too much, I slap yeast in fridge/freezer unprotected all the time at work and they work fine, it will just be a tad sluggish.

As far as pitching the yeast at too high of a temp, you could get some off byproducts, but (most) yeast naturally live at 30-37C so that is not going to harm the yeast. I'm sure your wort cooled sufficiently before hard core ferm kicked in.

Don't worry about it.

It'll make beer. Probably good beer. And you've learned and are going to get better at it.

I could list 10 mistakes I made on my first batch. It turned out okay and my next batches were much better.

I brew with tap water, my dad uses hot wort to sanitize his bucket, I've pitched yeast hot and dry. Best ideas? Nope. Does it work? Hell yeah.

That link is a great resource and fun read, thanks for posting. You would think with about 30 batches under my belt (albeit in the small Mr. Beer Kit) that I would be a little less paranoid. Different brewing process, but similar principles. The secret ingridient is patience and confidence, lol.
