I have made a dark ale that I can't get down to temp in time (without staying up forever) I have already rehydrated the yeast and I have put it into the temp fridge in the hope they will both be at 18 deg tomoz morning. question is will the us05 be cactus in the morning or will it be ok to pitch?

only one way to find out , bloke !
Have a smell and maybe a taste before pitching !!
When rehydrating , i always fill my glass jar with boiling water and then let it go to about 20degrees in the fridge....
I know at least that the water has killed any nasties.....
If your not sure , get a new pkt of yeast tomoz...
BTW...is your wort cubed..or is it in the fermentor cooling down there ? that can also be a problem...
Cheers

It is in the fermenter with glad wrap over the lid. It got down to 28 degrees but I wasn't pitching at that temp. I'll look at it in a few more hrs. If the yeast is no good I'll use the coopers yeast that I got with the can. Thanks for your ideas!
