Getting a new batch of must ready to go, feeling lazy and don't want to go to the LHBS... I have a batch of blueberry lime that I just put in secondary less than a week ago... think I could revive the yeast and make a starter for the new wine?

Just curious. :b

Short answer is , Yes... but whether this starter will be all ready to go will really depend on the stresses you subjected the yeast to with the blueberry lime. In other words, if the starting gravity was reasonable and if the total amount of sugars you asked the yeast to ferment was reasonable, if the pH was not scraping the floor and if you provided the yeast with all the nutrients it needed then very likely there is not a great deal you need to do to "revive" the yeast. though, the blueberry may have stained the yeast blue...
