If you can't fill a mason jar go to a smaller jar. I use baby food jars successfully...then the vials.

I've thought (many times) about buying lab test tubes and the neat little rack to store in, but I haven't gotten serious about it yet...it's coming...a lot more yeast in a smaller area.

I know that yeast starters are the way to go but some times I just decide to brew so if i store a cup to a cup and a half in individual jars it will not effect my beer to much to pitch at that rate will it?

No. There's a lot more yeast than what's originally in the vials when you buy them.

What temperature should the harvested yeast be stored at ?

Has anyone (accidentally, of course) frozen a yeast harvest ? Is that the end of the road for the yeast?

After you split it up you need to put it back in the fridge.

You can buy glycerin from the drug store and other places.
