Beer & Wine Yeast
There are two types of yeast on the market: liquid (or pure culture) yeasts and dry yeasts. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Dry yeast is less expensive, convenient, hardy and does not require a starter. We carry several different types of dry yeast that have performed remarkably well for us, and we can recommend them without hesitation.http://www.fermentis.com/FO/10-Home/home.asp
Liquid yeasts are pure cultures or blends of pure cultures and come in an extremely wide range of choices allowing a lot of possibilities when it comes to affecting the flavor profile of your beer. They have lower shelf life, usually 4-6 mths. depending on the manufacturer.
The Wyeast ACTIVATOR yeast has 100 billion cells for a better shelf life, shipping capability, quicker & longer fermentation. The ACTIVATOR smack-pack is the only package design that allows you to activate the yeast prior to using. The nutrient pack contains a full spectrum of free amino nitrogen, malt sugars, and micro nutrients necessary for a healthy, complete fermentation.

Premium Yeast for Premium Wines
Some of the world’s best winemakers trust Lalvin dry yeast to bring out the best in their wines.
Through a specialized manufacturing process, Lalvin yeast is brought to peak condition
for use in winemaking applications, then quickly stabilized by removing most of
the moisture content. This allows Lalvin dry yeast to stay active through storage
until it is rehydrated and pitched, ready to start the fermentation process.
We also ship your liquid yeast with an ice pack to keep it fresh. Ice packs are no charge.
