Optional Liquid Yeast Warranty Box
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 2-4 day Priority Mail shipment of your liquid yeast (up to 3 Wyeast Packs or 7 White Labs tubes per warranty pack).
Our Warranty Box includes the cost of separate Priority Mail shipping, and the cost of the foam insulated box and included 1.5 pound frozen ice pack. This Warranty Box will hold up to 3 Wyeast liquid yeast packs, or up to 7 White Labs tubes. 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 Tubes, you will need to order 2 Yeast Warranty Boxes to get a warranty.
You will have to pay the normal shipping charge on your order in addition to the cost of the Yeast Warranty Box. So this is a really good deal if you order all your supplies from us, not such a good deal if all you are ordering is one yeast pack. Remember, you can still order yeast and ice packs like before, but if you want us to warranty the shipment, you must order this optional Liquid Yeast Warranty.
An address where mail can be delivered is required
We cannot ship the Yeast Warranty Box to an address different than the one used for the rest of your order. So make sure that your order containing the Optional Liquid Yeast Warranty Box has an address the Postal Service can deliver to. If you live in a rural or remote area, put both your mail and physical address in the address area.
Be smart about your delivery address
When placing an order with an Optional Liquid Yeast Warranty Box, pick a delivery address that will be out of the sun when it is delivered. Ideally, pick a place of work or address where someone will be home at time of delivery. We cannot deliver the Optional Yeast Warranty Box to a different address than the rest of your order. If you need this service, place two orders, one for the bulk of your supplies, and a smaller one just containing yeast with an Optional Liquid Yeast Warranty Box.
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 at very little additional cost. 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 Only
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.
Well worth it.
Shipping liquid yeast cross country can be a problem especially in hotter weather as the exposure to heat can kill much of the yeast in transit. This yeast warranty box is a great idea as the Styrofoam lining helps insure your yeast will arrive cool and healthy. Brewing 18-20 gallon batches as I do is too expensive to risk a bad fermentation from a weak culture from yeast kill off during transit. I will never have liquid yeast shipped again without one of these warranty boxes. Thanks Williams for your innovation & great service! Worth every penny.!
This has always proven to work even during the hot Summer months and my coast to coast shipment. Never buy without it.
I have ordered many times and on a couple the yeast did not make it. I have ordered yeast using the insulated box and so far no issues.
Nice to have everything right when I brew and not have to hold the primary while replacement yeast is shipped.
first time using the yeast box, used to live in california and receive yeast in 1 day, took 2 days to receive the yeast box which was shipped seperately from the rest of my order. yeast was still cool to the touch upon opening
