I ordered a vial of white labs yeast along with other things. The temps have been about 10F at night and 20-30F during the day. It travelled for 2 days and is sitting outside my door. Will it freeze? Have you ever had any yeast freeze?

Same happens here in MA...never had an issue (BUT don't let them sleep out there all night!)...

Wouldn't worry too much...

...those bad boys are sitting in a bit of alcohol, resilient, and shielded in thick plastic with packing material and in a cardboard box.

If it's sitting outside your door, why not open it and bring it inside?

Yeast was fine. I was getting worried though; it was 14F by the time I could take it in.
