We will not replace or refund shipped liquid yeast that arrives warm/hot under any circumstances. Adding an icepack is an option that may minimize issues when weather is warm or hot in New Jersey, your state, or anywhere in between. Additionally, you may want to have liquid yeast shipped separately with an express shipping method such as UPS next day if you are outside of UPS one-day ground zones. Orders with liquid yeast, being shipped to areas with longer than 1-2 day shipping, will ship on Mondays or Tuesdays.

Omega Yeast Labs is proud to offer home brew pitches of select strains containing about 150 billion viable yeast cells at packaging. British Ale VIII OYL-016 A classic ESB strain best suited for English style ales including milds, bitters, porters, and English style stouts. Ales produced with this strain tend to be fruity, increasingly so with higher fermentation temperatures of 70-74�F. A thorough diacetyl rest is recommended after fermentation is complete. This yeast will leave a beer very clear, and will leave some residual sweetness. Details Flocculation: Very High Attenuation: 67-71% Temperature Range 64-72� F Alcohol Tolerance: 9% ABV Compares to WLP002 and WY1968*

All packs now contain 150 mL of yeast slurry to enhance the brewer's experience! For the convenience of your customers, pack height and width will not change. The pack's "gusset" accommodates the additional volume without increasing the pack's dimensions. With the increase of yeast per pack, you will notice updated pricing.

We do our best to insulate liquid yeast packs in a bubble wrap envelope but you'll have a much better chance of viability if you select an ice pack in the accessory list. During cooler months, a single ice pack is enough for up to three packs of yeast. In the summer, you may want several ice packs for a single pack of yeast and coordinate the shipping with us to avoid long periods in a delivery truck.

5 of 5 Good yeast October 7, 2022
Reviewer: Chris Decker from Hazlet , NJ United States  
This yeast was great. With any liquid yeast it’s recommended to use the starter. The pack has the date of when it was packaged. They even recommend using a starter for three months or older.

3 of 5 Not very good May 21, 2016
Reviewer: Jason Floor from Scottsdale, AZ United States  
I was not very impressed with this strain, I have used WLP-002 with much better success and it is also fresher normally. This yeast from Omega was 3 months old when I recieved it and was able to use it, and I did not use a starter, but I should have in retrospect. It took 96 hours to take off, and then resulted in an incomplete fermentation. This was likely due to the packaging date. I will be using WL in the future though as they are generally fresher.
