Default White Labs Sour Mix and Flemish Ale storage

Hey all, I got a vial of each today. Should these be stored just like regular liquid pitch-able yeast in the refrigerator.

I'd stick it in the fridge. It has sacc yeast that is best stored at cold temperatures.

However, saying that I deliberately store my re-pitch samples of sour wort at room temps to allow the bugs to develop before the next pitch.

I'd be interested in what others think.

Yeah, keep it in the fridge until brew day, just like the vial says

Another question. If I am just pitching the vial directly into the wort after chilling, what should I do about oxygenation. Yay or Nay?

Yay - still aerate after pitching like usual. Like the previous poster noted, the sour mix has sacc and Brett and needs oxygen for normal primary fermentation like usual. I just brewed a batch with the Belgian Sour Mix last weekend actually.

Thanks for the reply. I'm excited. Two 6 gallon batches today with two blends. Hoping to be drinking sours next year.
