So, I was at the LHBS yesterday and on a whim picked up some yeast that wasn’t on the shopping list. I had intended to buy something close to 1450, but I wasn’t thinking and pulled up the wrong thread. In the end, I came home with WLP530, an Abbey yeast. I even read “Abbey Yeast” on the label and it just didn’t register.
Anyway, it’s totally conceivable that I’ll use it at some point, but not for at least 6 weeks, which is probably the soonest the Belgian Dubbel I’m about to brew will be ready (using Wyeast 3787 for that). I want to taste that to see if any adjustments are required before brewing the next round.
My question is, should I exchange the yeast for what I intended to get, use it for a non-Belgian brown ale I’m planning for the near future, or will it be fine in the fridge for possibly a couple months?
