Safale US-05 Dry Ale Yeast 500 Grams

$113.99
SKU 9800

US-05 American ale yeast producing well balanced beers with low diacetyl and a very clean, crisp end palate. Forms a firm foam head and presents a very good ability to stay in suspension during fermentation. INGREDIENTS: Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), emulsifier E491 (BSG9800)


REHYDRATION INSTRUCTIONS: Sprinkle the yeast in minimum 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort at 27°C ± 3°C (80°F ± 6°F). Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes.
Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.
Alternatively, pitch the yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20°C (68°F). Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes, then mix the wort using aeration or by wort addition.
Fermentis dry brewing yeasts are well known for their ability to produce a large variety of beer styles.
In order to compare our strains, we ran fermentation trials in laboratory conditions with a standard wort for all the strains and standard temperature conditions (Saflager: 12°C for 48h then 14°C / Safale & Safbrew: 20°C). We focused on the following parameters: Alcohol production, residual sugars, flocculation and fermentation kinetic.
