Excellent steam beer yeast
US-05 is definitely one of my two most common dry yeasts. Often I don't have the luxury of fermenting at true lager temps, but I can get my fermenting space down to about 60f. US-05 is outstanding for those temps, and gives a very clean, unique taste._x000D__x000D_I don't bother rehydrating; just straight pitch. Fermentation is typically over in about a week.

go-to dry yeast
This is a great dry yeast for most beers. I always keep a couple packets on hand for emergencies. It does not throw up a lot of esters and it ferments clean.

Always keep some on hand
This is a nice, quick fermenting, neutral tasting yeast, and I always keep some on hand for any yeast emergencies that arise. A couple packs in the fridge has bailed me out more than once.

Best value yeast you can buy!
This is an excellent yeast for nearly any kind of ale and only about half the price of liquid yeast!_x000D__x000D_Even though I do not often use it for my brewing I always keep a pack of US-05 in my fridge as "back-up" in case my other yeast does not activate. These dry yeast packets are viable much longer than liquid yeast and take very little room to store. I don't brew without having one of these on hand just in case.

Good Stuff, It works well
Worked great, I'd use it again. Neutral, clean flavor. Easy as it is a dry yeast. No need to make a starter, just pitch and shake is my method.

Saves money
Its less expensive than liquid yeast, you dont need to make a starter (that costs money too), and it's easier to use (just pour it in) - a triple winner over dry yeast._x000D_Plus it makes good beer.

Love the 05
Just started brewing and used this with my first two kits. Rehydrated both times and had active fermentation in no time. If you read a bit about this strain, you'll find that it's one of the best dry yeast choices out there (for most beer types). And like so many others said, good idea to have some extra packets in the fridge!
