It’s been a little over a month since the launch of our new website, we’ve decided to take it on a joy ride to test it at scale. In order to do that we’ll need help from you! Normally we don’t sell our yeast directly to homebrewers, preferring to have a local homebrew shop order from us. But this all changes for one weekend only with our Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale!
From the 27th to the 30th of November, we will be dropping the regular prices of our pitches from $15.00 down to $12.00 for any freshly packaged product. Product that is getting a little longer in the tooth will be $9.00 a pitch. Don’t worry, these older pitches are still perfectly fine! If you aren’t sure we always recommend doing a vitality starter to make sure the yeast is ready to rock.
Wholesalers - these price drops will also be incorporated into your orders as well, so you can expect to see lower prices during your purchasing experience too!
For every order that is placed during this weekend, we will be giving $1.50 from each homebrew pitch sold to the Guelph Food Bank. Food insecurity is something that has become even more apparent in 2020, and we want to help ensure that people within our community are able to have access to food and supplies they need.
BFCM Questions and Answers
How do I place an order?
We will be unlocking our homebrew pitches to the public on Friday, November 27th at 8am. All you need to do is find the products in our homebrew catalog and add them to your cart. If you are not a wholesaler we do have a minimum order quantity of 5 pitches before you can place your order. Co-ordinate with some fellow homebrewers if you think 5 pitches of yeast would be too much for you!
How will you be shipping?
Yeast is a living product and keeping it cold is the most important part. To ensure that yeast arrives to you in a timely manner we will only be fulfilling orders with FedEx Priority and FedEx Ground. Other couriers are unable to provide firm enough delivery timelines for us to feel comfortable shipping through them.
When will my order ship?
Orders will start shipping on Monday, November 30th until Wednesday December 2nd. If we have a substantially large number of orders, those that were placed later during the sale may have their ship dates delayed until the 7th or 8th of December. We are keeping our fulfillment windows early into a week to ensure that nothing gets stuck in a warehouse over the weekend.
I’m from outside of Canada. Can I place an order?
International shipping requires a lot of work to prep everything before it can even be shipped. To keep things simple for our shipping team, we will only be accepting orders for shipment within Canada.
But like… I really want to buy your products!
We encourage you to get in touch with your local homebrew shop or homebrew club to work on placing a larger order. If you are placing a large enough order we will offer our wholesaler pricing discounts. You might not get in on the sweet deals from our BFCM sale, but you’ll still get our yeast at a reduced price. If you’d like to organize a larger purchase, get in touch with our homebrew team.
