Default Someone please tell me i didn't just kill these yeast

so i went to make a ghetto cooler out of tupperware and frozen 20 ounce bottles for fermentation...i put a little ice in to get the water down to a cool temp....just checked on it after 2 hours or so of being in there and the water was extremely cold and it had stopped bubbling...i pulled it out and im guessing i just ****ed up my first batch and need to start over...will it start to ferment again or is it done for?

Just let it warm up a little. It'll start back up in a day or two.

so too cool wont kill them, it just slows them down or stalls them and too hot kills them?

No, you didn't kill them. They don't actually die til you thaw them oiut.



Sorry, couldn't resist.

You'd have to freeze them to kill them with cold. Otherwise, you just put em to sleep. Kinda like refridgerating the pouch or vial.
