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.

This will work for both beers I have selected, plus it is dry and won't spoil in shipment. I use a yeast starter so I only will use about 1/2 of the packet.

Neutral yeast that I don't have to worry about

This stuff kicks a**
Have brewed several IPA’s and they all turn out great. I usually pitch around 68 and ferment at 60. My 11 gallon batches ferment in 5 days, which is quite reasonable for the temp.

Old standby
US-05 is my old standby yeast for ales. A very neutral yeast that contributes very little taste to a brew.
