Thought I chilled my wort to 70 F. Turned out the read was wrong and I ended up pitching at about 115 F. Any chance of salvaging the wort? Can/should I order another yeast pack (Belgian Ardennes) and pitch in a few days or am I screwed?

Let it cool and pitch new yeast. No need to waste the wort.

Thanks kapbrew. Of course being a holiday weekend, I don't expect the new yeast to arrive for at least 5 days. The wort is sitting in a sanitized bucket with an airlock. Hoping it will maintain.

Consider harvesting your yeast from now on so that you will have some on-hand when you need it. It's really as simple as good sanitation and pouring the cake into mason jars after you keg/bottle/secondary your beer.

Yeast wil be fine, I would be concerned about them kicking off fermentation at too high a temp.
