Description

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.

Great, classic dry yeast
This is the one to always have on hand just in case. It's also a go-to for American pales, ambers and IPAs.
