I made a 2 liter starter with 2 smack packs on Sun June 6. I put it in the fridge Mon June 7 for a Tues June 8 Brew day. It rained so brew day got cancelled. I took the starter out of the fridge and put it in my basement for use next Tues Jun 15 (9 days after making starter). If it rains again and I donít get to brew can I use it next Tues (16 days after being made)? If not what can I do to salvage the yeast and use it in the correct amount?
Thanks,
Mike

Put it in a mason jar and leave it in your fridge, then a couple days before you can brew again, make another starter with it.

cool, so lets say I make another starter-should I use all of the yeast in the final starter or just a portion of it?
Thanks,
Mike

It's up to you. I would decant the liquid on top of the yeast off, and add all the yeast.
