Impossible to get all the yeast out but worse, sanitizer drips off your hands onto the packaging and wants to drip into whatever you are pitching into. Absolutely hate it. Probably won't buy again.
I like the new packaging. I think the yeast seems more viable too.
I think it’s fine. I wouldn’t be against a slightly larger package with a bit more liquid to make it more pourable.
Don't get out all the yeast from any other mfr's packaging either, so not sure about that logic. Just spray sanitize the surface you'll be cutting; no need to dip your entire hand in sani. So not sure about that logic either. In short, it's no better or worse than Wyeast's or Imperial's or whomever else's packaging.
