SafBrew S-33 1/2 packet
« on: January 07, 2012, 04:40:18 PM »
So I just pitched a Honey Brown ale with 1 and a 1/2 packs of S-33.  I'm wanting to use the other half packet to pitch to my Barley wine when I bottle it, to bottle condition.  I wrapped it up tight and put it in a ziplock bag.  How long should it last?  I may not be able to bottle my Barley wine for a few days, will it still be good?

I would think it would be fine. keep it dry and cold. I keep bread yeast in the fridge for weeks!

Yeah, you'll be fine for a few days or longer.

And since it is being used for bottle conditioning only, any viability loss you do have shouldn't be an issue.
