Works very well, but the beer took a long time to bottle condition to get to its best
All the Imperial Organic yeasts are very fragile. Without the ice pack they can be seriously damaged. Long storage at the wrong temperature can damage it easily as well. The yeast was quite active. The packaging does leave something to be desired. If you shake it up and then open it, yeast gets everywhere. I found that the best technique is to sanitize the outside of the can, wash hands as clean as possible, shake the can, and open it under the surface of the wort. I made a rye beer with Independence, and it took several months before it was at its best.
