Default Left my reused yeast out overnight


I brewed an american pale ale last night, i had the yeast I saved from my last batch. I "guessed" how much of it I should add, and I dont think I added enough. I accidentally left the rest of the bottle out of the fridge overnight. I was wondering if it would be a problem if I added the rest of the yeast now? I don't think its a problem, but just want to double check.

I don't see any problem.

As long as the bottle you left out was covered and did not have a chance to get contaminated, there should be no problem in adding it.

I agree...if it was covered then you should not have any problems.

Lessee, the yeast has been in a room temperature fermenter for weeks at a time, yet you worry about 16 more hours?

And, about a cup of the sludge from a primary is about right, no starter needed except to check if it's still alive at all.

So far, I've had more experience thinking than I've had don't think they are mutually exclusive, do you?

72 batches so far,
48 wine, mostly Loquat, peach, plum, prickly pear
23 beers and ciders
1 sauerkraut
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"
