Default Might of put yeast in when temp was a little high

When I woke up this morning I realized I drunk yeasted again and I think I might of put it in when the temp was a little high like 80 ( but not sure). This morning it was bubbling good so I thought I was fine but now nothing. Is there anything I should do? Thanks for the advice

You should be fine. Instructions to rehydrate dry yeast suggest the mid 90s. If you control your fermentation temps it probably got down to temp before fermentation really took off.

Nothing you can right now about it. Esters and fuesel alcohols will be higher than if you pitched low but age MIGHT smooth them a bit. I'm not a big believer in "time will cure all things" especially when it comes to pitching high.

Next time, reserve the bulk of the homebrew for the AFTER brewing.

As long as temp came down before things really got started you should be ok.
