Default DOH! My helper pitched a packet of 1187 into hot wort!

I was cleaning last nights mess this morning and at the same time I was prepping a 2000 mL starter. I had my helper transfer the wort to an Ernlenmeyer flask and put it on the stirplate to cool but in his infinite wisdom, he dediced to pitch the packet while the wort was still hot, how hot I do not know. I asked him if he took a measurement of the temp before hie pitched and he did not. I quickly put the flask under the hose and then an ice bath but I fear it is too late. I know it's a bit vague not knowing the temp of the wort but is there a chance this will survive?

You don't boil right in your flask?

If the wort was over 120F, I think you're screwed.

I'm gonna let it spin for a few days and see what happens but I'm pretty much resigned to kicking down for a new packet this next weekend...

Hey, you never know, but I would not wait. The longer it sits with no activity, the greater the chance for infection.

A while back, a guy in a similar situation posted something about using bread yeast and it got him a decent beer.

I'm not saying...I'm just saying...

That's good info, thanks for posting. I got a pack of 1187 on order just in case but I'll report back in a few days if I see any activity.

On plus, if the first yeast died, it'll be nutrients for the next.
