Default Fermentation Temp Rise Question

I brewed yesterday and pitched yeast at 72 for an oatmeal stout. Last night it was bubbling, this morning going very well and temp was still around 72. I come home from work this afternoon and the temp has climbed to 78. I am gradually cooling down to try to get down to 68. My question is it too late to keep out off/unwanted flavors that may be caused by high temp fermentation?

You should be fine. A few hours at higher temps won't do all that much.

Not too much to worry about, like Evan said. The same happened to me, just be sure of course to not let that be a regular happening. Rock on and have a homebrew! (when its done of course)

Primary #1: I'll be Bock

Primary #2: Ash Red Lager

Secondary: Empty

Bottled: Rengaw Leaf Stout

Up Next: Unsure...

Thinking About: Banana Spice(?), Scottish Ale
