Safale US-05 American Ale Yeast - Fermentis

Safale US-05 American Ale Yeast - Fermentis

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Formally US-56, US-05 is a strain of yeast that creates that classic American profile of clean malt, crisp taste, low diacetyl, and ability to ferment in a wide range of temps. Look for US-05 to be the next popular dried yeast.

This yeast can be pitched directly, but if you prefer to rehydrate, the instructions are below.

Sprinkle the yeast in a minimum of 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort (we suggest 4 oz) at 70°F to 77°F (21 to 25 °C). Do not stir. Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.

*See the technical data sheet below for more information on rehydration, usage and storage.

Top notch product. Its my go to for reliability and consistent results.
Guaranteed to make a great beer, very clean, very reliable, and it doesnt get easier to use than this. I keep a couple on hand at all times and they have saved my you know what.
Do not worry about rehydrating, this is meant to be pitched right out of the packet. Follow directions and you will get excellent results.

Fresh yeast
I used to buy yeast exclusively from my LHBS, as I was never sure what I'd get online. But now that my local store closed, I need to get yeast online. I added a pack to my order from MoreBeer. I was pleased to receive a packet with a use-by date of 9/2021, two years from now.
