The yeast should have made the trip.

Think of it this way, when the yeast is in the frementor it will live for weeks at room temps. It does have more food to eat at this time, but it still is at room temps or temps from 62 to 74 they make it.

It was probably fine. Sure, it probably got warm in shipping, but not hot. It's cool in the upper midwest even in June!

But next time use the "cold shipping option". http://www.midwestsupplies.com/homeb...g-options.html The cold pack is under $1.

The fact that you didn't is not Midwest's fault, so you shouldn't slam them on a forum because you didn't order properly.

+1 to the above, I have always found Midwest to top notch and their customer service is always spot on, your slam is un-justified

I have ordered yeast from midwest many times without a cold pack and it has never failed to start. Make a starter to be sure and call them if there is a problem.

1) The yeast did survive. It would take very hot conditions to kill the yeast.
2) Midwest Supplies DOES know how yeast works.

Right on the yeast page:

You seriously overreacted. The yeast was fine. Even if it gets really hot you can usually make a starter and go.

Then you slam the vendor without even calling them with your issue.

Poor etiquette!

If the cold pack is so cheap, then why not just do it? My northern brewer orders always come that way, even in winter.

You sure YOU know how yeast work?

They actually like being at room temp. We keep them cooler so they do what we want, but yeast survive for months at room temp, much less three days in shipping. Might wanna rethink this thread.

So you threw the yeast away without even finding out if it was ok? I would have at least made a starter with it.
