Fermentis US-05 Ale Yeast Brick (500 g)
Fermentis US-05 Ale 500 gram yeast brick
This SafAle US-05 by Fermentis is for brewing ales, and comes in a convenient 500 gram yeast brick. The ideal temperatures for fermentation with this ale yeast is 18-28°C (64-82°F)

Being a dry yeast, SafAle US-05 does have a longer shelf life than liquid yeasts, up to 36 months after its manufacturing date. However, it is still recommended that you store this unopened brick inside a cool, dry area with a temperature less than 10°C.

These yeast bricks are for brewing large batches of ale at one time, or pinching off quantities for smaller volumes of brew. Once opened if you are not using the entire brick it should be placed in a bag, vacuum sealed and returned to a cool, dry, storage area with a temperature of 4°C. Doing this will help to preserve the yeasts fermenting ability and reduce the risk of contamination of the remaining yeast.

5 of 5 Love this yeast. March 25, 2018
Reviewer: Brew G from Halifax NS Canada  
I split this brick with a brew friend once a year.  We store it in a mason jars in the fridge.   Use a tablespoon/per 5 gal batch.   Never had a bad batch yet.   Stored good up to a year with this method, probably could have gone longer but used it up within the year.  I got a good 30-40 batches out of half the brick.
