I just recd the ingredients today for an IPA I hope to brew Monday. When I went to put the yeast in the refridge I found a packet of yeast that has been in there for a couple months. I think it should be viable. The one in my fridge is a Brit Ale and the one I just bought is a Brit Ale 2.
In a strange twist, I will out of town Fri, Sat and Sun until late so I really won't be able to make a proper starter. So, would it be ok to pitch both yeasts? I know this if fine if you are pitching 2 packets of the same yeast, but what about pitching two different types of yeast?
