The Premiership outfit's coaching staff were keen to take the teenage goalkeeper to Anfield for a trial.
Liverpool have been monitoring the progress of the 18-year-old, who made seven appearances for The Hatters last season.
But Luton manager Mike Newell, who started his playing career with Liverpool, rejected The Reds' request to trial Brill.
Newell admits the timing of Liverpool's request was not right but he concedes he may be prepared to allow the club to run the rule over Brill at closer quarters in the future.
"Liverpool were in touch asking about a possible trial but I rang them last week to say that Brilly was in the squad for the Boston game so he wouldn't be able to go up," Newell told Luton Today.
"If they want to look at him again in the future then they're more than welcome to do that."
Brill will have to wait for his chance this term as Newell is currently relying on Marlon Beresford as first choice with Dino Seremet as back-up.
