Liquid Yeast:  For local pick-up, we store all liquid yeast cold until you arrive to pick up your order.  For shipping orders, we recommend purchasing a shipping envelope and cold pack to help keep your yeast cool until it is delivered.  Check out our Economy Shipping Envelope & Cold Pack and our Insulated Shipping Envelope & Cold Pack options.

Dry Yeasts:  Dry yeasts do not need cold packs for shipping.  Dry yeasts can withstand short periods in higher temperatures.

Preparing a yeast starter is a good way to increase the yeast cell count before you pitch your yeast.  We recommend that you prepare a starter for any beer that has a gravity over 1.050. 


SoCo Homebrew is located in Austin, Texas.  Therefore, we do charge sales tax for orders shipped to addresses in Texas.  The sales tax amount should appear on your order once you type in your shipping address.
