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 is marked as directly pitchable yeast and there are no rehydration instructions.

Instructions for rehydrating yeasts: Suspend yeast in 4 oz of warm water. Do not stir. Let stand for 15 minutes. Stir gently. Add an equal amount of wort to your solution. Cover, let sit for five minutes, and pitch.

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

Thus is my go to yeast for all styles. It can be a bit slow to finish, but the product is always excellent.

This yeast works well every time, and surviving shipment during summer heat is never a problem.
