So I'm leaving on vacation to the Dominican Republic on tuesday morning, and I'll be back sometime sunday night. I should be recieving some WLP203 Burton ale yeast In the mail on monday, and I was hoping to get it into a starter so that I could brew the next week when I came back. Does anybody know if it's fine to leave it unattended all week or if my plan will make my yeast somehow useless?
Primary:Zach and Jack's African Amber, Lil Sparky's Nut Brown
On Tap: Fire In the Hole Red Ale, Sixpoint Righteous Ale
On Deck:Centennial Blonde, Amarillo Cream Ale

No, it won't be OK.
You could take a drive out on the Island, and I'll be happy to babysit it for you, but I can't guarantee that there will still be a starter when you return, but I might have a new batch of IPA. (I'm just missing the yeast).
Seriously, I agree with the others. It should be fine.
