I just bottled my triple chocolate stout last night and after all was said and done, I decided to harvest some yeast and keep them for my next stout. They are White Labs Irish Ale yeasties. I didn't have time to wash them properly and dispense them into jars. So I sterilized the White Labs vial they came in and scooped a couple table spoons of the trub into it, sealed it and stuck it in the fridge with the intention of washing it later. Is this ok? Will the yeast still be viable? I mean if they don't make it, it's not like I'm stressing, I can just buy some more. But out of curiosity.....
