I received my mini-mash kits on Wednesday this week. Upon opening, I discovered one of the White Labs Yeast vials to be leaking slightly. California Ale yeast... lovely smell. Anyway, I contacted the shop I purchased the kits from and was told that I should pitch it regardless.
I'm having a bit of a hard time with that. My thought is that if the yeast can get out... then certainly, the air outside and it's contaminants can get in.
I'm looking for some reassurance here...
Do you guys think this would be okay to pitch?
