It's been a long brew day, did two seperate 5 gallons batches today. The last one I used nottingham dry yeast and rehydrated it in about 111 degree water. Dont ask why cause I don't know( I guess it was the beer consumed today) is that way to hot, I am assuming it is. Did I fu** up or will it survive.

I think it's alright to about 110. Yeast are kind of like people when it comes to temps. Think of it as getting in to a nice hot tub.

I don't think I've ever used over 90f.
Everything is better with a beer.

Your yeast is fine up to 120°, higher than that you cause injury and death.
