I went online to a site that sells artisan cheese and they use gel packs and ship UPS overnight.
The cost was somewhere around $10.00 to ship.  Wondering what the gel packs cost.  I know that a brew supply shop where I used to live would sell these small ice packs with their liquid yeast's they mailed.
