Thanks for the responses, prevented a possible nightmare for my first liquid yeast.
Next batch will be in 3 weeks, I have time to adjust.
Ordered Munich Classic as a backup, or possibly the one to use.
I was on the email list from https://www.atlanticbrewsupply.com/
me when Wyeast 3068 is back in stock, just got the email. May call them
to ask date on yeast, my guess it is fresh.
If 5 months old needs a starter, how many months wouldn't ?
Don't see liquid yeast in my future, prefer not adding additional processes.
