    IN-STOCK YEAST: We maintain stock of high-selling liquid yeasts in the shop, to make it easy for anyone who needs liquid yeast in a hurry. These will always be sold within the best before date. If a strain is out of stock, then it won't show up as an option for you to purchase. If you want the freshest liquid yeast, or if we are out of stock, consider using the pre-order option. Pre-ordered yeasts are ordered directly from the manufacturer on your behalf and we do not use in-stock yeast to fulfil pre-orders.

    PREORDER DEADLINE: Each month we place a liquid yeast order, either for WYEAST or White Labs and The Yeast Bay. All pre-orders placed will be part of our next order from the relevant supplier, subject to the supplier having your pre-ordered strain in stock.

    We place our orders on or after the 20th of the month. The deadline to ensure your pre-order is included is midnight the day before.

    All pre-orders will be available for pickup or shipping after we receive the yeast which is usually around the first week of the month.

    *Note: we will ship your order when your yeast arrives, so if you wish to place an order for other items and want to receive them sooner, please place a separate order.
