I don't think my local HBS has any, nor have I seen any in my travels ...and now that I'm gettin' closer to doin' some unfettered brewin'.. well, why not dabble!

.... it just occured to me... like gardeners swapping cuttings... swapping bottles of brew (containing live yeast) could be advantageous if it's cost-effective...i.e postage isn't more expensive than buying the yeast :rolleyes:

but anyway, any info gratefully received and please feel free to indulge me with tales of your experiences and results...

Liquid Yeasts are always kept in the fridge.
I didn't know my brew shop stocked them until I asked.
That particular shop stores them in a fridge out the back of the shop.
Ask and you may be surprised.

Cheers,
Doc

It's probably common among HBS but I'm pretty sure that ESB mail their yeasts accompanied by a small icepack to help maintain temp during transit.

cheers

I've had liquid yeasts shipped to perth by road (3-4 days) with no bad effects. I just put them back in the fridge as soon as they arrive, worked fine.

Next time I order liquid yeast from east, I'll order a fair bit and just get them to put it in a 3KG overnight post bag.

Also, I'm sure somewhere in Brisbane must stock liquid yeast for you??
One store in Perth (TWOC) stocks WYeast. Surely someone in brissie stocks WYeast or WhiteLabs. Ask on the CraftBrewer list, theres bound to be some brissie brewers there.

I've ordered WYeast from grumpys no problem.
Well, apart from the fact that one of the smack packs got punctured by a sharp part of the CO2 regulator that was in the package.

You'd be best to find somewhere in brisbane that sells them, or buy it from the cheapest online retailer.

I could swear I saw a web site for a brew shop in Brisbane that said they had recently started stocking liquid yeast (Wyeast, I think). It appeared to be run by a husband and wife team, if that is of any assistance. I can't for the life of me recall the web address though, but I believe they might have been somewhere around the Burpengary (sp?) area.

Cheers,
Pete
