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.

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.

Summer Must Have

Review by John on 9/30/2014

When it is 110+ in the summer here and over 130 in vehicles, this is a must have item. If you brew year round?
