Safale US-05 Beer Yeast is one of the defining yeast of the American Homebrewing movement. It provides low to moderate sedimentation with moderate FG and is used to create crisp American beers we've all come to know and love. No hydration required, it's ready to pitch!

I've used this yeast several times and had good results with it.
Homebrewsupply is awesome, prices are right, shipping is fast and reasonable!
Safale 05 is my go to for ales. I like to activate the yeast before I pitch it and I almost always double pitch. I like safale 05 because it's more of a neutral yeast that doesn't affect the flavor profile much. The only reason to shy away from safale 05 is if you're brewing a high gravity beer.
Used this yeast on my first batch of homebrew and it came out great. The yeast took off exceptionally quick. Recommended.
