My Goto Yeast

Review by Mike Kane on 7/9/2021

I've never had this yeast give me problems. It finishes low no matter how high it's start. It doesn't go crazy where I need a blow off tube and it finishes in about 5 - 7 days.

Took a while to get started

Review by Chuck Dann on 4/13/2020

It's been a while since I used dry yeast. I went with a dry yeast because it was being shipped. It took a couple of days to start working, but after it started it fermented like normal. I prepared a yeast starter the day before and aerated the wort before pitching the yeast, so I don't know why it took a little while to get going. I used it with the Bear Claw IPA mashing kit, and it tasted good with gravities and ABV near the targets. I would buy it again. Maybe prepare the yeast starter earlier.

Very Pleased

Used twice to brew two 5-gallon batches of a Cascade Citrus Smash. Wow, great results. Both times I re-hydrated the yeast following the "John Palmer" recommendation: boil, then cool to about 75 degrees F one cup of water. Keep covered. Sprinkle the yeast over the cooled water (do not stir). After 15 minutes, gently stir and allow to sit for another 15 minutes. Pitch within 30 minutes.
