Yeast and Fermentation / Smack pack did not inflate
« on: September 23, 2010, 01:44:39 PM »
The yeast I plan to brew with this weekend was well past the Best Use date, but it is what the store had.  I smacked it last night, and there is no real swelling.  I plan on putting it into a starter tonight, but was wondering if people have succeeded under such circumstances?  Is there still possibly enough viable yeast to take off in a starter?

And as I use a stir plate and foam stopper for my starters, I won't see bubbling;  once settled, how many mm of yeast typically collect in the bottom of a 2000ml flask?
