I just got my ingredients for my next batch in today. Open the box and the 2112 wyeast activator pack has all ready been popped(guessing in transit). The bag is fully expanded and im not ready to brew for a few days at least. What do i do here. Is i already toast or how can i save it? please help?
If they ship without a cold pack they will swell. It doesn't mean the activator was popped. If you read on wyeast's website, it says it doesn't matter if they're already swelled and you can still use it as long as it's within 6 months from the mfr date. RDWHAHB. Refrigerate, do a starter as mentioned, and order it with a cold pack next time.
