*NOTE:*During summer months, we include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeast orders. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will stay frozen given transit times and particularly hot temperatures. For this reason, we recommend ordering dry yeast during summer months.

I made the caribou slobber and it was most excellent. I allowed it to go 8 weeks instead of the normal 4 and it turned out great. Except for one caveat, I had too much carbonation. However, I think it may have been a priming sugar miscalculation on my part.
I used the Wyeast 1332 Northwest Ale Yeast. Liquid yeast, in particular this one, makes such a difference.
I'm new to brewing and think it worked just fine not much of a review I know. It's just I dont have any idea how to review it since it was only my second time brewing.
The yeast worked ok. It did not really activate as well as dry yeast with warm water and sugar does so I was a little disappointed. The beer has turned out ok but it did not ferment to quite the level I wanted only about 3.5 % and should be around 4.5. Could be the cold pak wore out before I received it.
I've been brewing for 20 years. My wife likes nut brown beers and said this was her favorite of my batches yet. I enjoyed it and have ordered a second batch.
