Hi, I have two questions about yeast. When I first started brewing with the extract kits, I would order the suggested liquid yeast, and simply pitch that yeast at the appropriate time. I didn’t know about calculating for the proper volume of yeast. But, my beers still came out well. So, now I know to calculate for the proper volume, but my time is very limited, so I’m wondering why I need to spend the extra time propogating the yeast when the volume I used to use was just fine.
My other question is regarding the liquid yeast. I took it out of the fridge last night and activated it in anticipation of brewing today, but some thing came up, so I was able to brew. Am I ok just putting it back in the fridge? Will that damage the yeast? thanks.
