I do that when possible, but i don't always brew that often, especially more specialty yeasts. 1056 / S05 I keep and reuse fine, but something like this one, the Irish Ale I use for stouts, Saison and so on I don't use as often.Have you considered re-using yeast slurry? Many of us here do, and it usually works just great. No freezing necessary, just sanitized Mason jars. Kept cold, they can still be viable up to two months (or longer, for some). Money saver right there.
Sadly, I'm not an every week brewer, more often it's 2 to 3 months between at best.
