1 year agoDry YeastWow!! Great stuff, always arrives fresh..easy to use...great product!May 12, 2014Makes good wheat beerI like to brew wheat beer and have tried many different yeast. I'm satisfied with the results from this brand, and it happens to cost less than the liquid yeast, a double win. I hydrate the yeast in water before using, and don't add it directly to the beer._x000D_March 30, 2014Makes a good wheat beerSave a couple of bucks and use the dry yeast. I don't need to make a starter either, just sprinkle it in. The yeast eats all the sugar and gets to the expected final gravity and I have myself some good wheat beer.February 16, 2014Works Hard!I like a lot of the dry yeasts, this one acts quickly and ferociously. I usually oxygenate my wort but with this need a blow off tube if I do. After a vigorous few days it does very little. Fun to watch, decent results.December 22, 2013Nice YeastThis is a very nice yeast to keep on hand. I prefer to use liquid strains but keep a few packets of dry on hand to brew on a whim.December 18, 2013My wheat beer was good with this yeastMy friends liked this wheat beer, though I prefer the liquid yeast, it was still pretty good. I'm not sure why it costs more than the Safale S-04 and S-05, but for wheat beer it's the only dry yeast choice.December 15, 2013Make A Yeast StarterYeast is always too expensive so I started making starters. Here's what I do, after mashing I collect (in a 1000 mL earlymer flask) about 400 mL of wort (prior to boiling) dilute to 600 mL and microwave until it boils. I cover with a paper towel and rubber band. I let it boil for about one minute, cool to room temperature and then add 2 grams of dry yeast. I then add a magnetic sir bar and with a stir plate stir for about 4 hours. During that 4 hours I'm boiling wort, cooling wort, adjust the gravity, whirlpool, let settle for about 2 hours, rack off sediment into new bucket and then add my yeast starter which is already bubbling. By morning my fermentation is on its way and I only used 2 grams out of the 11. I will get an easy 5 fermentations out of this 11 gram packet. Prost !November 7, 2013Always Use this,I brew a large amount of Wheat Beers. Its most of what I do. I always use the dry yeast, it's just how I learned i guess. I've been tempted to try the more expensive yeast just to see...but why? I have never had a batch fail. I do always pre hydrate and get it started before pitching and i have never had a bad batch in decades...September 18, 2013Makes good wheat beersI've used this yeast twice and both times I was satisfied with the beer. It's kind of expensive for dry yeast. For less than $2 more I can get liquid yeast, so I don't plan on using this often.July 30, 2013
