What will freezing washed yeast jars do? I have several washed yeast jars, all dated, most

I have the same pot, so I know exactly what you're talking about.Within reason, it doesn't

Longtime lurker, occasional poster on the BN forum. Finally decided to post in response to an
interesting thread on BIAB, since that's the method I've been using. In the process of moving
