Default Dry Yeast Storage

How do you store dry yeast? Fridge? Freezer? How long of a shelf life?

Do not freeze. That will/can kill it. Keep mine on fridge door as well.

I had mine storing in the fridge as well and this batch I just brewed seems to be taking a while to start bubbling. Hopefully the yeast is alive and well!?!? Any thoughts?

Was it dry yeast? If so, did you re-hydrate it before pitching? What strain was it?

I didn't rehydrate it at the discretion of an employee at brewmasters in San Leandro, CA. It is Safale S04.

It has started bubbling now but not firing off like the other batches. I "think" I'm good! Hope I'm good! Haha

On the fridge door in what used to be the butter compartment.

Did you let the yeast warm up to room temp or just pitch from the fridge? The only long lag time I ever had was when I finished brewing late one night and relized I had not taken the yeast out. 48 hours later it started.
