I haven't tried liquid yeast yet, and I have wanted to. I ordered because ice packs are offered for use (for a fee) with shipping.

Not sure why it would not activate.
Slap pack did not activate yeast. Tried a yeast starter for it as I do with all my yeasts and still didn't activate, had to use an alternate yeast for my NEIPA. Been a MoreBeer customer for 17 years and this was a very rare occurrence.

The London III yeast is great for biotransformation with my hazy/juicy IPAs. The bags arrived in May with dates on the bag from March. I ordered two. They arrived partially inflated with melted ice packs, but I pitched them both into my 5 gallons of wort and they worked great. Dry hopped during high krausen (and two more dry hops at the end of fermentation and after fermentation) Attenuated down to an FG of 1.010 as desired. Fruity esters and lots of good hop oils in my packaged beer!

Love 1318
Use for IPA's and NEIPA's. Great yeast. I make a 1200ml starter and I get activity after about 4 hours. 24 hours after pitch it's chugging hard, and then slows a bit but keeps working steady. Definitely a favorite yeast.

Make hazy baby!
Great yeast for New England IPAs. It a classic English strain that’s good for most styles where you need that more sweet fruity character.

Delicious and clears beautifully
I just used this with MoreBeer Mild Brown Ale and it’s fantastic. It nearly came out of my 6.5 gallon carboy though so I might the larger Speidel next time, and top crop while I’m at it.

Powerful Yeast!
Very good yeast, this does not need a starter, i used it making a starter for a 5.5 gallon batch and it was crazy powerful. In the future will make it with the starter and split it in half and make 2 batches from it.

Super fruity yeast, works so well with hazy IPA. Tends to start a bit vigorous, I have had to switch from airlock to blow off tube with 1318.

Arrived cold with the 2 ice pack shipper. Made a good size starter. Took a 1.076 down to 1.012 in 1 week.
