I was stoked recently when everything went "perfectly" with the brewing of a Wee Heavy type Scotch ale. Ph, OG, and FG all exactly matched the software(Bru N' Water and BeerSmith). Unfortunately, I botched everything with a mistake in setting my fermentation controller to the wrong temp, and the beer reached 70 degrees while fermenting(for about 24 hours). The finished beer appears to have a off flavor, but I'm not sure. Any way of saving it, or should I just forget it. I've heard that kreusening with some wort and fermenting beer can help? Is what I'm tasting probably diacetyl? Here are some specs: OG:1.098, FG:1.022, Wyeast #1728 pitched from a very healthy starter. Thanks in advance. Also, I'm aware there are other threads like this.
