No it don't.
Never cap yeast. Just a bit of sanitized tinfoil will do to seal it.
With the water replacing the wort, it may never get to the point
of causing a bursting problem, but ya never know what harm to
the yeast it will do over time. Pressure AFAIK is bad for yeast
when it is in the extreme.

It wasn't at the time of that post....back late last november. Thankfully, we're on the other side of Christmas and we're good to go again.

Well, I just brewed a batch of pale yesterday. I had 2 bottles of yeast, one had some pressure, the other didn't. I didn't know if the one without the pressure was because the cap didn't seal, or the yeast was dead, so I tossed that one down the drain. Used the other to make a couple starters and they took right off. Checked my fermenters this morning and got a good healthy krausen on both. Maybe I was lucky.
