Describing high-temperature Bose gases poses a long-standing theoretical challenge. We present exact stochastic Ehrenfest relations for the stochastic projected Gross-Pitaevskii equation, including both number and energy damping mechanisms, and all projector terms that arise from the energy cutoff separating system from reservoir. Analytic solutions for the center of mass position, momentum, and their two-time correlators are in close agreement with simulations of a harmonically trapped prolate system. The formalism lays the foundation to analytically explore experimentally accessible hot Bose-Einstein condensates.
