    I make 2.5 gallon batches and regularly seal up half the yeast packet and use later. Sometimes 2 or 3 months. Never had an issue. I just keep it sealed tight and refrigerated.

    See no reason it wouldn't work.

    I had some S-04 sealed up for many months and brewed with it. I made a starter with it and the beer came out better than I expected.
