Great American Ale yeast
This yeast worked great for an American IPA. Pitched dry with no problems.

Good all around yeast for brewing.
I've never had a safale-05 fail me. I also save the trub and use it to pitch the next batch I brew. I do this two or three times before buying a new sachet. Never had a single problem.

My favorite!
I’ve never been disappointed using this yeast and it’s my go to for ales. I tend to ferment in the low 70’s (70-72) and it works great!

Good dry yeast
This yeast does well and produces nice clean beers. This yeast also seems to hold up well to borderline extreme temperatures. I can run the brew a little on the warmer side and get good beer.

Hard working yeast!
I appreciate the confidence that this yeast gives me after a long brew session, knowing that it is going to work. Sure fire yeast!

before 'pitching' into my wort, I pre-started this yeast in a small jar with warm water. Let set for 15 min. The yeast was active. I mixed it with my work. Week later it was barely working (stored in moderatly warm bathroom tub).
Dug thru my supplies and found a 8yr old packet. Pre started again in warm water. Added to previous batch and it took off fine. No idea as to why the supplied yeast did not work.

Does this yeast need to be refrigerated at all times before use?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, Dry yeast can even be stored in one's freezer. The cells contain no water; hence, there's nothing to cause them to rupture when stored at temperatures below that at which water freezes
