Sounds like you're on the right track - but for future brews you really want to try to find a cooler room, if possible. Something closer to the low to mid 60's will keep your yeast a lot happier, and lead to a better finished product. Those yeast are likely to throw some fruity esters at those temperatures - fermentation creates heat, so if the room is pretty close to 70F, the fermenter itself is closer to 75-80, which is possibly one reason you had that big of a blow off!
