Default Yeast question

How long does yeast stay viable at room temperature? Usually I bottle after two weeks but life got busy recently and my last batch stayed in the fermenter for a month before I got a chance to bottle it.

Will it be ok or should I have repitched the yeast?

It should be fine.

I'll second that; it should be fine. You gave it an extra two weeks to condition and cleanup.

I often leave my beer in the primary 5 or 6 weeks, and have no issue carbonating.

Hey, thanks, guys/gals. I bottled this batch last Sunday and just popped a liter bottle open. Not much fizzyness yet but it looks like it's getting there. Might have one or two more bottles just to make sure. Also, although it's a little flat, I gotta say it's one of the smoothest batches I've ever made. Letting it sit for a month might become a regular thing.
