Default how long does liquid yeast last with out refrigeration?

When I returned from the brew shop yesterday I had so much going on that I forgot to pop my white labs yeast vial back into the fridge. I just remembered it more than 24hrs. later.

Does anyone know how this will effect the yeast?

Thanks

24hrs should not be a problem - ive made this mistake with wyeast smack packs before, at least a couple times.

My suggestion is to make a starter with it to quell any worries you may still have about it's viability.

+1, make a starter and no worries at all.
