due to circumstances beyond my control saturday my yeast vial, WLP300, was taken out of the fridge for approx 1.5hours and then put back in the fridge. then yesterday, sunday, it was taken out again for a good 3 hours. i know it made it up to room temp, 75ish during those 3 hours.

am i still good to use this stuff?

make a starter first. that way you'll know if its busted.

In my opinion definitely. Yeast aren't always refrigerated in transit and that generally takes more than 3 hrs. But like pwndabear said, can't go wrong making a starter.

Your good, just think about how many times it gets warmed up from the Lab to the store to you. Make a starter, you will be good.
Don't touch that please, your primitive intellect wouldn't understand alloys and compositions and things with... molecular structures.
