Default Frozen yeast...oops!

I just washed yeast for the first time, and I was pretty impressed with how easy it was and how well I did. Well somehow the placement of one mason jar was too close to the back of the fridge and it froze. Good learning experience I guess.

It's probably ok. I've used frozen yeast before, just make a starter beforehand.

Don't give up on it until you try making a starter with it.

Aaaahhhhhh! I just dumped it before reading. Well all is not lost. The other mason jar did not freeze so the WLP568 will live to ferment another day.
