Default No yeast action

I tried doing a cold fermentaion for the first time this week. Put it in my secondary fridge but i think it got too cold. Did I kill the yeast or will it do its thing once i get it to the right temp.

If it is dead can i pitch another batch of yeast into the same beer?(would hate to waste all that beer).

We need more information but I can assure you the yeast arent dead unless you pitched at 120 degrees

What kind of yeast are you using, and how cold is your fridge? Some yeast strains are designed to ferment in the high 40's/low 50s, but most don't do well at fridge temperatures. The yeast strain has a specific temperature requirement, so make sure you're following that.
