How old is this White Labs yeast?
« on: September 01, 2012, 01:18:00 PM »
This vial of Czech pils yeast says to use on or before Nov. 11, 2012.  So, how old is it?

The White Labs says their yeast has a 4 month shelf life.  Does this indicate that my vial is ~2 months old?

Count bact 4 months from nov 11 to get a "birth" date of July 11th
