Default yesterdays experiment with yeast

I brewed a DFH 60 clone yesterday, and after getting it into the boil kettle, I added a pound of flaked corn and a pound of flaked rice etc to the wet grains...and mashed it again and ran off a partigyle. I had a starter in the cooler that I had made at least two months ago. I am not EXACTLY sure of the date but I made 3 that day and the other two have been used, the beer fermented bottled and drank already. This stuff was brown and nasty on top, but I could see a layer of nice white yeast underneath . I pitched this ( again just to see as I have backup yeast if needed) This afternoon there are bubbles slowly coming through the airlock and a small layer of kraussen starting. I am amazed at how resilient yeast actually are.
