Default Fruit Fly and buying more yeast

Ok just got ready to pitch a giant Munich Lager starter for My oktoberfest when i peel back the foil to 5-6 fruit flies.

I'm hesitant to chuck it but don't want to risk the batch. So I am going to go get new yeast but not until Monday.

Can my wort last for 436 hours while i wait to get new yeast?

DOn't risk it. Fruit flys are swimming in LACTo. It can definitely last. Just make sure it is sealed up well and dont open till you have yeast in hand.

436 hours is a lot, but until tomorrow should be OK. Better than fruit flies.
