I've been reading all these comments about Notty yeast being bad if fermented at high temps. I have a milk stout that I used Nottingham for that's been sitting between 68 and 70 degrees, should I be worried?

If that's the ambient air temp, yep. If that's the beer temp, possibly.

That's pretty much all you can do at this point and hope/pray for the best.

Ahhhhh summertime! Is there a fermentation fridge/freezer in your future?

Yeah. This is just my sixth batch, all the others were brewed in the winter/spring. I really need to invest in a fermentation chamber.

I'll definitely check out my water ph before doing another brew.
Is that to say you're using bottled spring water or is it a spring that your local supply is hooked up to? I've read from a few people that their spring water needs a bit of treatment before it can be used to mash with but wouldn't purport to be an expert on water treatment. I would recommend getting some brewers pH strips though, then you'll know without doubt whether your water is wreaking havoc with your beer. Good luck mate!
