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.

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.

if your liquid yeast doesn't start a dry pack is the key to finishing
