Default High temps on day ten

My room temp got out of hand on day 10. About 77 degrees in the carboy. This is my first batch. It's a light ale from extract. What should I do?

I'd hazard that you won't suffer any ill effects with a temp spike that late in the fermentation -fermentation should be completed before that -take a reading and if so, rack it to a secondary (if it were a darker ale, I generally don't bother with secondaries) and get ready to bottle or keg or however you intend to carbonate and consume.
You really should be fine.

Thanks, I hope so. It's at 74 not 77 that's a plus.

I think I'm going to try. Got a tub from work, ice bath in the morning. I'm shooting for high 60s. Is that right?

High 60's (68-69) is great. 74 is high but not unreasonable for a beer. You will just get a bit more yeasty characteristic in the brew.

But fermentation should have been completed by now. Don't sweat what you can't change, take a hydrometer reading and if the FG is there or close to there, rack that stuff into a secondary, or into the bottling bucket!

For a lighter ale it should have fermented all the way down by that point, so it shouldn't have much of any impact
