Due to the recent Thanksgiving Holiday my Fedex package containing brew supplies sat at my doorstep for a few days at below freezing temperatures (25 degrees). This package contained White Labs liquid yeast. Does anyone know if this would harm or ruin the yeast?

If it actually froze, then it's a goner. You could try making a starter (that's what I'd do if I were you, I hate throwing things away) to see if it's going to recover, but it doesn't sound likely.

I went ahead and pitched it anyways since I didn't have the necessary materials to make a starter. There is a little airlock activity so I think I got lucky.
