US-05

Species : Ale
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°F 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.

Best Styles : Most American Styles

Works Great!
I purchased two of these yeast packs thinking that if one didn't work or stalled, then I could double up and still be ahead money wise as a regular pack is 4x the cost of an expired one. Well...I got my order and these are really expired, January and June 2016. I sprinkled one pack on top of a freshly brewed AIH Cybier RyeBier...and one day later the yeast was active and burping the air lock. Checked the gravity and there were NO ISSUES with this yeast. Presuming proper storage by AIH, dry packaged yeast can go a few years past expiration in cool temps; room temp has lower viability. However, a little expiration yeast worked great.
