Just a couple of Q's; Where was the kit stored? Attic, basement, middle of the Mojave under an inch sand, sunken in Lake Superior? Would you say that the temp was stable over the last eight years, and could you guess to the storage temp?
Pretty darn cool. I am just asking for novelty's sake. I don't plan on storing yeast for almost a decade. But curious none the less.
