Safale US-05 is one of our favorite dry yeasts. It is essentially a dry version of the classic American ale strain offered by other yeast manufacturers, and exhibits all the same qualities that make these yeasts so popular. A clean, neutral flavor profile is produced, and acts as the perfect base on which to build excellent American style beers. Often used in pale ales and IPAs, it is a versatile strain that can be used in almost any style. It is relatively attenuative, ferments well and clears well with a little time. It can be used when hops, malts, or both are to be accentuated. All of these attributes make it an ideal choice as a house strain. This is definitely a great yeast to have a pack of on hand for brewing emergencies!

Beer Styles: American Amber Ale, American Barleywine, American Brown Ale, American IPA, American Pale Ale, American Stout, Braggot, Brown Porter, Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer, Cream Ale, Dry Stout, Fruit Beer, Imperial IPA, Irish Red Ale, Other Smoked Beer, Russian Imperial Stout, Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer, Strong Scotch Ale, Wood-Aged Beer.

Reliable strain
US05 is a reliable strain, but tends to ferment very efficiently...but be careful with DIPAs or any other high hop big pale ale....it can dry them out too much and result in lower malt profile than desire able.

Great yeast for American Style Ales
I use US-05 for just about all my APAs and IPAs. Clean fermenting, and very neutral. The fermentation temperature that has worked best for me is 66 degrees F. This was my first order from GF, fresh packet of yeast, was shipped right away.

Always In My Fridge
I always have a couple packs of US-05 on hand, just in case I wake up and want to brew. Little lag time, when properly re-hydrated and even does the job when you just sprinkle it in, which is the case for this lazy brewer.
