Hey all, so last night I did my first mini mash, and I started out my mash a little high, high 160s.......I played with it and most of the mash was in the mid to high 150s area as per instructions. Now I know high fermentation will yield unfermentables, but if I adjusted to a lower temp was it able to get some fermentables or no because it started too high?

How long did it spend in the high 160s?

You're probably okay then. Certainly I've seen worse and survived.
