+1 to RDWHAHB. Just clean it out when you change your next keg. If you have extra line, then replace it if you want, but not necessary.

If it was not frozen solid the yeast should be fine. I'd make another starter with it just to be sure though.
For future reference, if it was frozen solid you'll probably get 99+% die off, but then with billions of cells there will probably be enough to revive if it is a hard to find strain. If not, just replace it.
To prevent it in the future, put it in a warm spot in the fridge - top shelf, close to or on the door. You might have had it right next to or under the cold air vent from the freezer.
I wouldn't trust myself.. it's far too easy to go overboard.
I agree, you do need to be careful with it. Plain water may be fine at the colder temps. I'd just hate to open up a keg and see mildew after it had been in the kegerator for a while. I still think a StarSan solution is the best.
My questions is, are you sure it works?
excellent everyone! Let me know how things turn out.
Dave thats a long protein rest!
That's the marketing anyway. Without details on the composition of the plastic, or controlled testing, who knows?
