my montrachet yeast packet says to mix it with 105 degree water before pitching. is this okay? Ive heard alot of people on the forum say not to expose yeast to high temperatures....

this is just to rehydrate the yeast and kick start the process. similar to what baker's do to proof baker's yeast.
once you pitch it, it's going to be fine and in the right temperature zone.
