Default Wyeast American Wheat 1010 at 75 degrees?OOPS!

Hello with my move from 2.75 gallons to 5.5 gallon batches I have noticed that I have a more difficult time controlling temperatures. I have a wheat beer fermentation going right now thats peaking out and I'm desperately trying to get it down from 75 degrees to 68-70 with a water bath right now. My question is how bad am I hurting this beer by fermenting Wyeast American Wheat 1010 at 75 degrees? This yeast says that its optimum temp range is 58-74, but I'm a degree higher than that. If it helps this is a american style wheat with alot of orange and lime zest, amarillo hops. Thanks for any info.

in my experience, the high end of the temp ranges given by wyeast is too hot to begin with. sorry man.

dang that sucks, oh well, hopefully it'll still be drinkable, can a longer primary and longer bottle conditioning help reduce some of the bad flavors?

RDWHAHB. This is just part of the total home brewing experience.
This batch may be a little more fruity than you'd like, but it will probably be drinkable.
If you don't like it at first, store it in a cool place for a month or so and try it again.

I keep a half dozen plastic coke bottles in the freezer.
Put one or two in the water bath and switch when they're melted.

true, you might get a little hot alcohol flavor but chances are it will still be drinkable
