How to find the "Born On" date of White Labs Yeast?
 
Mr Malty wants the birthday of the yeast. The White Labs vial has "Best Before" What is the birthday to use?

It is 4 months prior to the "best before" date.

???? I also was under the impression that the production date is 4 months before the best by date.

Wow, I thought it was 4 months too... Dude, you got yeast from the FUTURE!!! Well, at least 3 days in the future anyway. Ask it if they have flying cars yet, and let us know.

I asked my yeast about flying cars once and it just stared at me. Never again! :mad:

I thought that it was 6 months. I don't remember exactly why, but it may have been one of the podcasts or the yeast company website.

From the White Labs Website:

What is the shelf life of White Labs Yeast?

Quick Answer: 4 Months

They go into a more detailed explanation in the FAQ post.
