Good cheap yeast Review by Hank

(Posted on 11/7/13)

Product Rating:

I keep some one hand in case I get a stuck fermentation. I mix up a starter and pour it in at high Krausen to try and restart the stuck beer. I can also us eit for bottling for an old beer that's been ageing several months.

General purpose yeast Review by Tony

I've used this a couple of times and overall I'm satisfied. It works well enough, is balanced and medium in attenuation and floculation without making a lot of esters. The package may say there is no need to rehydrate but thats not true. You will get more cells surviving if you do rehydrate before spinkling it on your wort.

I've used this 3 times, and each time it worked out, and fermented down to completion. Usually it's done in 3-5 days. I always rehydrate dry yeast, and never directly sprinkle it in.

Nice flavor Review by Sam

Forget what the package says and properly rehydrate it. It takes a little while to get going, and doesn't ferment as quickly as some other yeasts. But it attenuates well and is neutral, allowing the malt flavor through. Give it the full 2 weeks to ferment, and then additional time to condition.

Made a good copper ale Review by Brandon

(Posted on 2/24/13)

Product Rating:

The yeast fully attenuated my copper ale, and was fairly neutral. It fully attenuated and made a compact yeast cake. I gave the beer a full month in the bucket to give the yeast time to finish up.

One more thing - as for not needing to rehydrate - after reading the yeast book by Chris White - that is not true. The reason you rehydrate is the yeast are unable to control the flow of nutrients when they revive from their dry dormant state. Some will die. If you sprinkle the yeast, many will live and you will get beer. But if you spend the minimal effort to rehydrate you will get more living yeast, and have a better tasting beer and a better chance of not having an infection.
Always rehydrate - no exceptions.

Great dry ale yeast Review by Nick

I've been brewing in temps as low as 58 and this yeast still gets going very quickly....often times being finished in 72 hours!

Great all around dry yeast Review by Beagle

I have used this with several types of ales, most recently a pumpkin ale with lots of freshly baked pumpkin. It starts bubbling quickly and works fast at temperatures from about 62 to 72. It settles out nicely so makes for easy pouring after bottle conditioning. My favorite dry yeast.

I have used this yeast for Pale Ales and Hard Cider with great results.

Good all purpose yeast Review by Scott

(Posted on 11/27/12)

Product Rating:

Very nice yeast to have around since it is dry it keeps as an emergency yeast if you need it. Good, consistant results and excellent as a "neutral" yeast when you want to highlight the malt or hop character in the beer and don't want the yeast to add any particular flavor (like in some specific ales like saisons etc.). I haven't had as solid of sedimentation as other reviewers but it wasn't bad.

Good Yeast Review by Jeremiah

I gave this dry yeast a try with my last batch of ale and I'm very happy with how it performed. I rehydrated it, even though you don't have to, and my airlock was bubbling happily within 4 hours. I'll definately use it again in the future.
