How long will Iowans last in fridge ?

Postby gazzat » Sun Apr 09, 2017 12:02 pm

Gday, just a quick question.
How long will an open tin of lowans last in fridge ? I really can't be bothered going down to shop to get more.

How long has it been in there? I have had it sit for 6 month's before.

I keep mine in the freezer and it last for ages, before distilling, a tin of lowans would last me years for making pizza dough

Vac sealed and fridge will see 24 months but it's so cheap doesn't really matter.

Like plumby & Stig. Just rehydrate. A starter will kick off in minutes............. If the yeast is good.............

Cheers for the replies.. I rehydrated so should kick off shortly.
It wasn't the cost of replacing it, it was the motivation to go down the shops to get more. :))
