I'm ready to brew an Australian IPA but the yeast I was planing on using is ruined. The only yeast I have left is a Wyeast Czech Pils 2278 smack pack. This is meant to be fermented in the 50's. Has anyone used this yeast for an ale at warmer temps (approx 70F) or does anyone think I should just go ahead and try it.

If it is the only yeast you have, guess you don't have much of a choice.

It will have a different flavor profile, I'd imagine. Do you have any yeast from a different batch that would be closer in style than 2278?
