My son put my AHS yeast pack in the freezer...just found it frozen solid and put it in the fridge.
Do I need to order another one or do you thin kit will be okay by next weekend?
You'll need to make a starter to be sure.
Life is tough. It's tougher if you're stupid.
I can't think of anything worse after a night of drinking than waking up next to someone and not being able to remember their name, or how you met, or why they're dead.
the cell count has probably been greatly reduced if not killed.. make a starter and step it up or order another one.
I had a brain fart and put a yeast pack in the freezer overnight.
I pulled it out, let it thaw in the fridge, and put it in a starter.
The starter worked great, there was activity 6 hours after pitch.
The living yeast will just eat the dead yeast in the starter anyhow. Make a 2-stage starter if you can and then RDWHAHB.
Thanks for the advice. I'm gonna order a new one and do a starter...I'll be ahead of the curve for my next batch that way.
