So easy to use
This was my first attempt at using activated dry yeast and I can't believe I waited so long. I attended a Fermentis webinar where the employees discussed their work and fielded many questions from homebrewers. I was pleased to learn so much about their work that I gave them a shot. In short, I think this is my new yeast. I simply followed the directions and dry pitched. Done! So easy and the results have been great. This product is an example of where you don't have to sacrifice quality and you save yourself so much time...I really like that.

Very good yeast. After the primary fermentation, I collected about two liters of yeast.

First time I have used this yeast... I ordered dry yeast this batch because I could not get locally the liquid strain I prefer... Covid-19 has impacted some ingredients as far as availability...
I went with this SafAle-US05 strain because I did not want to ship a liquid yeast with the summer heat we have this year...

I must say I am very impressed with the results so far! I rehydrated according to SafAle instructions... pitched as usual... it was slow to ramp up... activity within 12-24 hours but no real heavy fermentation until the 24-36 hour range... but once it started - it has been a steady work horse... on day 5 now and it is still a real steady activity... can’t wait to try the beer...
