  • Fermentis US-05 Safale US-05

    Fermentis US-05 Safale US-05

    The most famous ale yeast strain found across America, now available as a ready-to-pitch dry yeast. Produces well balanced beers with low diacetyl and a very clean, crisp end palate. Sedimentation: low to medium. Final gravity: medium. Pitching instructions: Re-hydrate the dry yeast into yeast cream in a stirred vessel prior to pitching. Sprinkle the dry yeast in 10 times its own weight of sterile water or wort at 27C± 3C(80F ±6F). Once the expected weight of dry yeast is reconstituted into cream by this method (this takes about 15 to 30 minutes), maintain a gentle stirring for another 30 minutes. Then pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel. Alternatively, pitch dry yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20C(68F). 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 and then mix the wort e.g. using aeration.

Racked today

2013-12-28 10:40am

Racked to secondary today and dry hopped with approx .75 oz of Amarillo pellets. Color was good, still cloudy, wished I had gotten that whirlfloc in but tastes good. Should settle during secondary then cold crashing.

Kegged and Carbonated

I kegged this brew today. Force carbonated and it is pretty good. Cleared very nicely after cold crashing. The amarillo hops come through in the aroma. Not as malty as I thought it would be. OG was about 1.056 and FG was 1.012. Nice breer for first all grain experience.
