So I ordered some yeast along with a couple small items from Ritebrew on Sunday. Got confirmation that it shipped Monday. For whatever reason it showed up today. I just got to it and it's really warm and probably has been for a few days. I smacked it so I will see what happens. But how long is too long not being cold? I bet it's sitting at 90 degrees right now.

Should be ok. 

 

As you already know well, the starter will tell the story, but I'd wager your yeast is just fine.

I would make a starter, crash it and pour off as much liquid as you can.  I bet the yeast is fine but the liquid isn't.

This yeast turned out fine. Its crashed now with a nice big cake at the bottom. About 20 min from pitching, will decant first.

I always wondered about this.  I sometimes receive yeast during warm weather and other times I pull yeast out of the fridge and it seems REALLY cold.  But I've had more issues with OLD yeast than I have with very COLD or very WARM yeast.  Good to hear it's okay.

The yeast had a date of May 16th, so at least it was fresh.

That was probably the difference-maker.
