Safale US-05

What is your experience with Safale US-05?

Twice I have used this yeast and twice I am not happy with it.  Used it for a blonde ale I brewed this weekend and it took close to 30 hours to start showing signs of activity.  I rehydrated the yeast before pitching.  My fermenters are a bit cool at 66 degrees.

 

Clarifying your beer

Several folks use this method with good results.

Cold crash your beer until it is below 50 degrees.

1/2 tsp Knox gelatin (any unflavored gelatin should work) BTW gelatin has a positive charge

1/4 cup cool water

Add the gelatin to the water stir and then microwave in seven second bursts, stiring between burst until the liquid reaches 145-150 degrees.  Add the mixture to your beer.  Continue chilling your beer to near 32 degrees and allow it to sit for 24-36 hours.
