I just bottled my first batch and I wanted to leave my beer at 70 degrees to carbonate properly and I accidentally placed my beer under a heat vent in my room. They had only been there for about 24 hours and I think the heat only came on two times or so. When I noticed just now, I went to remove them and the bottles were rather warm (hot, even). They were sitting in simple 6-packs. How worried should I be about my beer? Do you think this would produce some sort of off flavor or just get the yeast going into high-gear?

Haha, well I just wanted to know if there were any reports that say not to do this, if it is something to avoid, or a "no-no".

My house gets up to 85 degrees in the summertime before I turn on the A/C. If it was an issue, I would have noticed by now.
