Yes, keep it covered loosely with lid of somesort to help keep any nasties out.

I was thinking vacuum?

Edit: on second thought, probably not enough of a vacuum to worry about.

I would wait till you got yeast, before I'd use the dredging from the bottom of a few bottles.

I still need to learn the terminology. I assumed "cooking" the beer was part of the overall "brewing" process.

Its a chocolate stout. Its on the stove with a lid on it now.

I might have some yeast at my parents house. Im going to call and have them check. If they do, i will drive over and get it.

Im pretty sure there is some safale us05 there. Would it be ok to use that? Or should i wait till tomorrow and get some Nottinghams that the recipe calls for? Im not even sure my local store carries nottinghams.
