Was smacking a Wyeast pack of California Lager yeast a couple hours prior to making my starter and the top seam of the pack burst open! Only opened about 1/2 inch or so and only a few drops of yeast came out. Starter wort was not ready yet, so after spraying the pack down with star san, I folded it over gently and held it shut while sanitizing a small mason jar and scissors. Carefully cut open the pack and poured the yeast into the jar.
Then quickly made my starter and pitched the yeast from the mason jar. Hoping everything is copasetic. I guess time will tell when I smell/taste the starter wort prior to pitching. What a PITA!
