Made an American Style wheat, 60% wheat, 40% Pilsner, about 20 IBU's. White Labs American Hefewiezen yeast.
I pitched my yeasts and went on a business trip. Four days later, I returned to discover that my fermentation temp was at 72F. I was expecting about a 68-70 range.
What should I expect from this beer? Can I re-used the yeast on another beer or have the high temps caused it to change to where I shouldn't re-use this yeast or is this a good fermentation temperature?

Ted, I've never used that particular yeast, but I see no reason why you wouldn't be able to use it again with no issues. All it did was produce a little faster than you wanted it to. I would say your beer may have some fruitier esters than maybe you'd hoped, but should still be a fine beer.
