Default Refrigerate Dry Yeast??

Should I refrigerate dry yeast? I have about 5 extra packs just from making sure I have enough on hand. I have been reusing my yeast thanks to the information on this site. Now I have a stockpile of some pretty good yeast and wondering best way to conserve it. Thanks guys.

That would be the best place. My LHBS keeps all yeast, liquid and dry, in the fridge.

cold makes ale yeast go to sleep and if i'm not eating i'd rather be sleeping too. then you put into a slurry on brew day and then its meal time.



I'm trying to drink away the part of the day that I cannot sleep away
