Panacked this am when i found out i needed to cool it asap.

I'm doing a porter and got the wart cooled in 1 1/2 hours to 70 deg and pitched.

Should be OK????

Yes, should be fine. Next time use an ice bath or wort cooler.

Was the wort covered or uncovered for the hour and a half? If it was covered and didn't get too many airborne critters, you should be OK. Also, the outcome will be slightly dependent on how much yeast and how viable the yeast pitched was.

Bottom line: get a wort chiller and pitch lots of viable yeast to avoid worry, but I wouldn't worry about this batch.

(And if there are issues, just call it a Belgian Sour Porter.)
