A very popular yeast which produces a very neutral clean flavor. One of our favorite dry yeasts, although it does not attenuate as far down as many other ales yeasts - expect slightly higher final gravities and a bit sweeter flavor profile. Medium flocculation, attenuation: 73-77%. 

11 gram pack is good for pitching 5 gallons. Click here to download a manufacturer's specification sheet.

For Low-Gravity Beers Only

Review by Michael J. on 3/6/2006

Pros: This is a good one to use for low gravity ales where you want some softness, but still desire a relatively clean finish. I've used this for my English Milds (which I keg) and, believe it or not, it makes a really nice, crisp "American" style wheat beer.

Cons: This is not the most robust yeast in the world and is not high in either attenuation or flocculation. I tried making a dark brown ale with this once that was very dissapointing because it was just too sweet. For your medium and higher gravity beers, if you prefer to stick with the dry yeasts, I recommend the US-56 for American style ales and the S-04 for English styles.

Pros: Quick fermenting

Cons: It's cloudy. Good for cask conditioned beer, but just doesn't give me that crystal clear beer

Fast acting yeast

Review by Rawdul on 2/10/2013

This yeast will furiously burn through wort in 2-4 days and be done. I have been very happy with it in around 1.050 ales. It attenuates at a slightly higher gravity than one might expect, but it makes a good tasting ale.
