I understand I don't want to wash yeast that has been stressed due to a high gravity wort, but what about this:
I just brewed a clone of Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. The problem is that ambient temps shot up in the last week and I ended up fermenting at 74-76 deg F. Seeing as theis yeast is listed as ideal from 60-70 deg F, would this be considered "stressed" yeast?
If I wash the yeast and re-pitch later at a more appropriate temp, will I get normal performance (esters, phenols, etc.) out of this yeast or have I permanently altered the strain?
perhaps a line of single hop IPA's - there's so many new hops out there!!!
