A safe bet

US-05 ferments clean, attenuates well, and is very forgiving. I always keep a pack in my fridge, as it's a great, easy choice for nice clean ales.
Never lets me down!

Safale US-05 has never let me down and neither has Beer Grains. Super dependable, quick to start and never any stalling.
Very Good Yeast

I have used this yeast a couple of times now in IPA's and other ales and it always ferments well with very neutral flavours. This is my workhorse yeast and I haven't had a bad beer with it yet. My main comment in this review is really about Beergrains. The service and prices are excellent. I'm glad I have this resource so close to home. Great job Jason. Keep up the great work.
