    I have some yeast that has sat for some time in the fridge and don't want to lose it so I have added it to 2L of DME and its on my stir plate, it will go back into the fridge again when done. How long should I leave it on the stir plate?

    It will go back into the fridge. Just playing with yeast right now, want to have knowledge of how yeast works and how to build it up.
