Question for the group - and my first post:
I planned on brewing tonight, using a yeast starter. Starter was active for about 30 hours. Then while I was at work, my wife (in an effort to help out) put the starter in the fridge, like I asked, in order to get the yeast out of suspension. However, she placed the starter in the refrigerator, uncovered. Ooops. It sat in the fridge for about 2.5 hours before I noticed. I put some cling wrap over the flask and its still in the fridge.
I live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - its hot and wet here (perfect for growing all sorts of nasty bugs), but the starter is in the fridge albeit uncovered for 2.5 hours. Is it safe to use tonight?
