Just make sure you wash it good then it should be able to be stored for quite a while. Also find out what generation it is, most yeast is good until about 7th or 8th then it is getting pretty used up.

I have literally got gallons of yeast from one of the most popular breweries here in Alaska, they are usually stoked and always wanna talk beer. It would really surprise me if they turned you down. I'm sure its getting asked for free beer that gets old with them.
