Easy to pitch, fermentation started quickly

I've always had good success with White Labs yeasts. The packaging is convenient - I usually keep it in my pocket while I'm doing all-grain brewing to warm it up. Fermentation began within 5 hours.

Perfect

Made a 1L starter, and this yeast produced a stunning Bock. Will definitely use again.

Warm shipping & yeast was thick like toothpaste

I've been reassured a few times that it's OK for this liquid yeast to be warm for several days during shipping, but it just doesn't sit well with me. I'd even pay more for a "real" ice pack and better packaging. A styrofoam clamshell and more ice packs would do the job, I believe. I live in California, and it's HOT here, when this yeast arrived the weather was like 85 F. And imagine that yeast package sitting in the hot mail storage warehouses here, etc. Anyways, when I used it, it was thick like toothpaste. Did it work ok? I can't say for sure, because I know there are other variables, but it's a fact that my Belgian didn't ferment much. I had to buy another pack from a local store (it was cold and also very liquid like it always has been...) and ferment longer. Overall, I'm very happy with Northern Brewer and will continue to order *most* things here, but I've also had a bad experience with warm/ill-packaged liquid yeast in the past, and I don't want to keep replaying that story. So, long story short, perhaps include a drop-down menu item for "cold shipping" where I could pay more and have it shipped cold.
