Perishable liquid yeast arrived hot

Fortunately, I was able to revive the yeast by making a starter culture, but when this arrived both the package and yeast contained within were hot to the touch. If I had attempted to use as-is, I may have had issues with my fermentation.

The package of yeast was kept cool the majority of the transit time and should not be an issue. If you are concerned it's always a good practice to make a yeast starter to make sure the liquid yeast is alive and well. If you do not have a flask you can make a starter by boiling and cooling the starter in a small saucepan and then pouring that into a sanitized growler with a piece of sanitized aluminum foil over the top. If the starter fails to go we are more than happy to replace the yeast for you.

Did the job, almost...

Second time using a White Labs product over a Wyeast product and second time I've been slightly disappointed. This yeast (with a 2L starter) took almost 16 days to ferment from 1.046 SG to 1.011 where it stopped cold, did not produce much of a Krausen. Plenty of oxygen at the onset, steady temperature of 67F... maybe the yeast got too cold during transport? Either way I (almost) never have issues with Wyeast smack packs.

Use for... a lot of beer

After two years I have decided this yeast needs promotion. I have used this strain since I have started brewing and even have and am still using the original recycled one. It may be sluggish at times but it is well worth great flavor. It has supplied my quence for citrusy beers and will use it.... forever..
