ADO: SafaleUS-05 - American Ale Yeast

Post #1 made 11 years ago
Very clean, crisp flavor characteristics. Low fruitiness and mild ester production. Slightly citrus like with cool (60-66F, 15-19C) fermentation temperatures. Versatile yeast, which produces many beer styles allowing malt and hop character to dominate the beer profile. Flocculation improves with dark malts in grain bill. Normally requires filtration for bright beers. DE or pad filtration recommended.

Flocculation: Medium-Low
Attenuation: 73-77%
Temperature Range: 60-72F, 15-22C
Alcohol Tolerance: 10% ABV

Substitutions: Wyeast 1056 (generally considered as an identical strain.)

Having done my first beer using only hydrometers, I got a 73.5% AA using US-05. That's about the same range as all my other Dead Guy clones.

I know Dead Guy mashes at 152 F (don't know how long), is a 77% AA and uses Pacman yeast.

I will try mashing at 149 F, if needed next time. Is anyone getting a higher AA than me?

I did this;-
Mashed 90 mins at 66.2 C = 151.2 F
Fermentation was Safale US-05 for 15 days at 18.4 C = 65.12 F

67.5% Rahr 2 row (3.5 EBC = 1.8 SRM)
22.8% Weyermann Munich type 2 (25 EBC = 12.7 SRM)
9.8% Crisp Caramalt (52 EBC = 26.4 SRM)
