US05 will definitely still work at 68, just may not give you as much of a smooth, crisp finish as 60 would. I'm pretty sure US05 is rated up to 72*, so you should be fine. Not too sure what to make...

Bottle carbonating will give you some sediment at the bottom since you're basically restarting fermentation a little bit. It's unavoidable. I am sure most of it is just from that, unless you were...
