Nah,no need to re-pitch. I did that the first time or two following cooper's instructions about mixing in the FV,etc. 30-32C,oopsie. But I figured out how to "fix it". Basically what we're advising now. It'll likely just finish initial fermentation faster,mine did. It'll then slowly ferment without many bubbles or none at all,down to FG. And give it a week after that to clean up those unwanted by products of fermentation & while it settles out clear or slightly misty at the same time.

Ok thanks guys, it seems like the yeast has woken up, I've managed to get the temp down to the recommended level now. I definitely wont be pitching that hot next time though. I'm going to leave it as it is for a few weeks now as after reading through a few of the other topics it would appear that it is not really necessary to go for a secondary fermentation in a new vessel.
