Default It's Finally here!!!!

I took advantage of the 10% off free shipping at MWS. I can't wait to get started with my new kit. Has anybody brewed this beer yet? On the recipe box it says to put the yeast in the fridge upon delivery. Is that necessary to do right now? Should I do that a day before brew day?

Put the yeast in the fridge now. This will keep the viability more stable. Hot yeast will kill cells.

On brewday morning take the yeast out of the refrigerator and put it on the counter to warm to room temperature before adding to the wort. You want the wort and yeast temperatures to be pretty close.

Got my starter kit about a month ago. # 1 tip, be sure you have a big enough pot, at least 5 gallon. Only has 3'so had to use two pots and spit everything. Beer turned out perfect, but it made a mess.

Either tomorrow or the next day. Speaking of...will the LME be ok in the box for a few days? Or should I put it in the refrigerator? It's an Autumn Amber Ale LME from Midwest Supplies.
