If you abuse yeast with super high temps (excluding crazy saison yeasts which can handle temps in the 90s), they will produce a dastardly beverage. But at 75F, it doesn't sound like you have done so....

Realizing personal preference requires multiple attempts. I say pitch NOW. It's not like you bought a 20 gallon grain bill. Try it this way, and then try a sour mash, or let the lacto go for longer -...

"Wait, you can do that?"

If you can afford to get separate equipment, do it. That's a guarantee. Fermenting side by side? Well, I've never heard of a yeast, brett or otherwise, exiting through one airlock and invading...
