Must have for the summer months

Review by Jeffrey on 10/2/2014

It usually takes about five or six days for my order to reach me all the way out in NC. I have never had a bad yeast packet when I get the warranty box with the ice packets, even when I order in the hot months of June and July. It's definitely worth the $7. You probably won't need it if you're ordering in December or January. But in the warmer months, it's definitely a must buy.

Great packaging

Review by vickie on 10/1/2014

I love this idea. My yeast comes cold and safe. The only thing I can say is....can we recycle is? I hate throwing this away. Could we send it back for a future credit? Maybe half the cost? I think this works perfectly and I hate wasting money. Recyclyling is our future William's Brewing Responds: Glad you like the box. Unfortunately, the cost of sending is back would not make it feasible and we can think of no other way to get liquid yeast to you in the warmer months. It might make a good small cooler for something, though.

Ice pack had melted but yeast was still cool.

Best way to go when you live in Texas

Review by John Anderson on 9/30/2014

I had made my "End of July" Barleywine ( in preparation for Christmas / New Years) and about 3 weeks in, I noticed that for some reason, this time my RedStar Champagne yeast stuck at 1.021 this time. Needed .005 - .010 I went to my local HBH but they were out of the WLP-099 I wanted to use to kick-start so I decided to get it here. Seeing how it was August in Texas, this little piece of assurance was a "no-brainer". Ordered it on a Sunday, got it that Wednesday. Opened the box and I was a tad bit worried at first.The gel packs felt warm to the touch... not just room temp. The 2 vials of -099 also BUT, I figured what the heck. I didn't even bother with a starter. Just shook the tar out of 1 vial and pitched it. Placed the other in the drawer in my fridge. Within a couple of days, it was obvious this little "mini-ice chest" did its job and my Barleywine is back on its way...ageing in the under-the stairs closet. I would HIGHLY recommend making use of this option. Will use it again.
