I bought a Wyeast Activator pack and ingredients from Northern Brewer. Upon recieveing it, I placed in my refrigerator. This was approximatly a month ago. I plan on brewing next week. My question is, the yeast package has been in it's expanded form for a couple of weeks. It must have been shaken too much in shipping. Is it still good? Or should I order a new package of yeast?

Thank you,

It should be OK. I'd make a starter for sure though.
