Default Water Bath Canning

Can you can harvested yeast? or would the temperature kill the yeast?

Yeast are living organisms.
You will kill them. That is the whole point of canning - to kill all living things in the jar.

Yup, I put my harvested yeast in pint canning jars. I boil the jars first to sanitize them. I use starsan on the lids. Fill them up to the top and put them in the fridge. Nothing further is needed.

There are a terrible lot of lies going around the world, and the worst of it is half of them are true.
