Brewstore are a White Labs Freshness Accredited Supplier. We get our White Labs direct from the lab in San Diego to ensure maximum freshness. Our yeasts are packed with free ice packs for shipping as standard.
White labs live liquid yeast should be kept refrigerated and brought out to bring them to room temperature 2-6 hours before you use them.
As part of the Freshness Accredited Programme we take delivery of every strain of White Labs core range of yeasts which have been freshly cultured to be dispatched to us every quarter. We also take additional deliveries so that we are restocking our yeast every 3-4 weeks. The White Labs strains are cultured in the same packaging that they are delivered in to ensure a yeast which has never been exposed to the environment and is therefore as pure as possible. White labs yeast strains have a 5.5 month shelf life.

If your order is awaiting stock and not likely to be shipped for more than two days, we will contact you to let you decide to wait or if you would prefer a substitution/refund. If you have a specific date you would like your delivery to arrive on please advise by email, so we can dispatch it the day before and we'll do our best to accomodate this.
