A friend of mine who reads homebrew in print form and is a
microbiologist as well as a brewer looked at the discussion on
freezing yeasts and pointed out something important--if your
refigerator is a frost-free model, then there may be enough
temperature variation in the freezer, especially near the door, to
damage the yeast. They (yeasts) keep quite well frozen, but will be
ruined if subjected to a repeated freeze-thaw cycle.
