So I've been making yeast starters for a bit now and have been loving it. I have however never done or read about what I happened to do with the latest batch and am wondering if I'm okay.
After my starter batch I shook up my wort, pitched my yeast, and placed it on my stir plate for 2 days. It's been snowing like crazy though so I thought I would just knock them out for a bit (refrigerate) until I can brew later in the week. When I picked up my jar I had the sudden sinking feeling that I had forgot to vent after aerating. Yup, big release of gas when I turned the lid. Bubbles formed a good 2 inch layer in the jug and then went down to a normal looking starter.
So am I okay? Or did I really mess up the aerobic respiration, cell growth, cell division of a yeast starter. I'm worried that my overall flavor of the beer is going to be affected as well.
