Rehydrating at too high a temp would kill off a bunch of yeast, leading to a lower pitch rate than you intended. I don't know that low pitch rate is a cause of fusels; I thought high ferm temp led to...

All settled in the cooler, where it will stay for at least 3 weeks at 65 degrees.

After 3-4 weeks, I'll rack to a secondary and allow it to clear further for a week or two before kegging.
