yeast viability
so i got lazy last week and never brewed even though i made a starter. its about a quart and a half, and its been sitting out for almost a week and a half now, is it still good or would i be better to just get another vial for this afternoons brew.

uh...it's probably ok...maybe...but next time i'd throw it in the fridge if you're not going to use it for a while.

He means pitch it into the wort.. :D

I have yeast sit from one week to the next in my harvest jars with no ill effect.
