So, picked up ingredients to brew Denny’s BVIP tomorrow. LHBS had everything but the yeast because his supplier had WLP001 backordered. Yes, I know that I should be using Wyeast 1450 to TRULY make Denny’s BVIP but I digress. He had a pack of WLP001 in his fridge at the shop that had a use by date of August that he tossed in with my order for free so I figured I’d toss it on the stir plate and see if it would wake up for me or not. I grabbed a 4 pack of fast pitch with my last order so I tossed a can of that in the flask and spun it up last night. It’s been over a year since I’ve used fast pitch cause they’ve been backordered so I totally forgot to dilute it with an additional can of water until around noon today. It smells nice and yeasty in the flask but I’m not sure if I’ve overly stressed older yeast at this point. Any advice? I’ve got another shop about a half hour away I could run over to tomorrow if needs be.
