We ship liquid yeast year round, but do not provide a warranty on liquid yeast unless you order this optional yeast warranty. What this includes is separate 2- day Fedex Air shipment of your liquid yeast (up to 3 Wyeast Packs or 8 White Labs packs per warranty pack).
Our Warranty Box includes the cost of separate Fedex Air 2 Day shipping, and the cost of the foam insulated box and included 1.5 pound frozen ice pack (orders under $99.99 still have to pay a separate Flat Rate shipping charge).
This Warranty Box will hold up to 3 Wyeast liquid yeast packs, or up to 8 White Labs packs. If you are ordering more than 3 Wyeast packs per order, please order multiple Yeast Warranty Boxes. For example, if you are ordering 3 Wyeast packs and 3 White Labs packs, you will need to order 2 Yeast Warranty Boxes to get a warranty.
DO YOU NEED THIS?: We ship liquid yeast that is fresh and kept refrigerated at all times until it leaves our warehouse. Ordering this optional Yeast Warranty Box will insure your yeast is kept cool or at room temperature during transit during the warmer months. If you live in zones 3, 4, and 5 on the map above, is it highly recommended that you order this box along with your liquid yeast. This is not needed for hops or dry yeast. We cannot replace liquid yeast that has been damaged in shipment unless a Yeast Warranty Box was ordered at the time of shipment. Yeast may arrive at room temperature or warmer, but should be fine as long as it arrives within 3-4 days of shipment.
ORDER ON MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, SATURDAY, AND SUNDAY: To keep delivery times to 3 days or less, we highly recommend you order your Liquid Yeast and Yeast Warranty Box on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday only.
