3 months agoGood 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.May 27, 2018Purchased
5 months agoMy 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!April 25, 2018Purchased
6 months agoGood dry yeastThis 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.July 7, 2017Purchased

1 year agoI have had no problems with this product. I probably use 15 packs of this yeast plus many more other numbers allgoodFebruary 12, 2017Purchased
1 year agobefore '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.February 11, 2017Purchased
