    My order from AHS came in on Friday while I was gone and the yeast stayed in the box inside the house. AC is set at 76 degrees. I put the yeast in the fridge last night.

    It should be fine ... now if it had been over 85 for a week ........ just dehydrate before pitching so you know for sure ... but I'd bet money its still good

    perfectly fine. i've bought dry yeast from shops that keep in on the shelf. i'm sure it's not ideal, but it still made good beer.

    Dry yeast is pretty dang tough ... or they wouldn't be able to dry it at all

    Is it dry or liquid? Either way... at 76 I'm sure it's good.

    As long as it remained in a sealed package I am sure it's fine.
    Amigo, lay them raises down.
