Due to a cockup with the brew fridge controler the temperature in there got to almost 40C for several hours. I assume that the whole batch has had it. Ã°Å¸Ëœâ€¢ Ã°Å¸ËœÂª Is pouring the whole batch into a pressure vessel the only solution? I've only just found out so I've even considered pouring the lot back into the fermeter with some sugar and east to see if it can be reused. 

Ah well, at least I've probably achieved a first in this particular bit of stupidity. Ã°Å¸ËœÅ“

 So where in the process is the beer ? whats your og and current gravity reading ? what does it smell taste like ?

 Im expecting this to be like nail varnish remover tbh, that will age out but could take 12 month or so, so really its a question of do you want to wait ( if it is this bad ).

 Taste it and see whats its like

If it's a few days into fermentation it should be ok. Early fermentation, probably not. It's the main period of fermentation that's crucial, generally days 2 and 3. But also don't assume a beer is ruined til it's beyond doubt.

Sorry I should have put in more details. It was in the bottle for about about 24 hours before the temperature probe was removed from the fridge.

If the beer was bottled at the time of the high temperature it should be fine.

Phew! I've got one bottle with a screw lid which I intended to open first to check carbonation, so I'll do that in about fourteen days time. Temperature is now at 22 C.

 Id agree this late in the brew it should be fine.

Being impatient, I thought I'd just see if carbonation had started so I slowly opened the screw top bottle.  At the very most hoping to sniff some CO2 and to my great relief and surprise I heard a "phut" as the gas came out. Yesterday when I re-sealed it it was flat, so it looks like I got away with that one.

I took a bottle out of the brew fridge today and put it in the fridge fridge for a few hours, Plenty of carbonation in seven day and no off flavours. I gave a couple of bottles to my neighbor, who wrote a glowing review which I am far too modest to post but he did finish with "you brewed a cracker there Pete".  Now to brew a decent size batch of the AG Chinook and Citra I've done in the past.
