4.9 / 5.0113 ReviewsExcellent steam beer yeastUS-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.December 31, 2012go-to dry yeastThis 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.December 20, 2012Always keep some on handThis 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.September 13, 2013Best 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.December 24, 2012Love this yeastI use this yeast for every basic bear that i can This is my go to yeastSeptember 17, 2013Excellent dry yeast.Finishes clean and clear.March 19, 2016Good Stuff, It works wellWorked 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.December 26, 2012Saves moneyIts 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.September 25, 2013Love the 05Just 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!December 28, 2012
