As usual, the batch arrived in short-order. The kit I ordered is my latest favorite (Hazy IPA). The ice packs keep the hops & yeast cool until I can get them into the refrigerator until we're ready to brew. The ice pack get continued use and I highly recommend. I'll be ordering more shortly!
The packs were just put in the bag with all hops and yeast. Other venders will put the yeast and ice packs in a insulated bags and one even offers a small foamed box. They were fine but it was still cold temps outside when shipped. It’s a long way from Michigan to Florida. I see that I’m not along with this complaint. You would think you all would do something to fix it and not get complaints about it.
Very good kits and a always a pleasant experience with AIH.
Very icy ice pack!
Not worth the added cost since itís not even packed with the yeastÖ. Yeast on one side of the box and ice pack on the other side, not even close to each other. Ice pack was thawed and warm and the yeast package was warm and swelled. Other companies put the ice and yeast together in a padded pouch.
