SafAle™ US-05 Fermentis Dry Ale Yeast
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
