This Safale US-05 dried ale yeast is a dried American Ale Yeast, reputed to be similar to our 1056 ale yeast strain. This ready-to-pitch dry yeast offers low diacetyl for well-balanced ales. One of our favorite dry yeasts, this one produces a very clean flavor.

Also, we have tested this yeast versus champagne type wine yeast and against turbo yeast, and found it produces a very smooth and aromatic whiskey and bourbon once the final distillation is done.  It also ferments corn/barley mashes out down to 1.000 if you also add White Lab's Ultra Ferm enzyme to the ferment (our item A79).

Fermentation temperature range: 59 to 75° F.

Safale US-05 in 11.5g is supplied in 11.5 gram packets, suitable for pitching 5 gallons of wort(formerly called Safale US-56). Click here to download a manufacturer's pdf data sheet.
