SafAle US-05 Fermentis Dry Ale Yeast

Fermentation Temp Range (°F): 60-72
Apparent Attenuation Range (%): 73-77
Flocculation: Medium-Low
Alcohol Tolerance: 11%

Pitching/Fermentation: Sprinkle the yeast in minimum 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort at 25 to 29°C (77 to 84°F).
Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes.
Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.
Alternatively, pitch the yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20°C (68°F). Progressively
sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes,
then mix the wort using aeration or by wort addition.

Notes: American ale yeast producing well balanced beers with low diacetyl and a very clean, crisp end palate. Forms a firm foam head and
presents a very good ability to stay in suspension during fermentation.

It’s a standard

versatile and does what it needs to. There are not choose it, but just as many to do so.

My go-to yeast.

Like the name, SafAle is a safe bet for most brews. I've never had trouble with it and it always gives the expected flavor and character I expect in the given recipe.

Blaine G
US -05 Yeast

Used it many times for ale beer. Never any issues with it. Good solid yeast for ale.

Mitchell Stuck
A reliable staple.

I have used a S05 for 20 years and it’s always been a reliable workhorse. Neutral flavor, strong fermentor, reliable starter when rehydrated, cheap and great flocculation and attenuation. I use it for all my ales unless I need a particular yeast character for Belgians Weizens, etc.

Easy. Dry yeast. No prep.
Doesn’t blow up fermenter
