Ya ya ya lol. I just need to figure out what kit to buy next to use my wyeast pack on. I was thinking nb's cream ale kit might be good with heffeveissen yeast.

Actually man, don't feel pressured to use that smack pack, it will last for months. Also, you've got tons of hef zombie yeast you can pitch straight from your fermenter once that batch is done I'll bet if you did a cream ale on the cold end of the yeasts tolerance it would do just find though.

I've used smack packs that were several months old before. Just make a starter, or two (or three) stepped starter and use that bad boy when you brew something that will work with the yeast.
