Can this yeast be used in a high gravity beer?
A shopper on May 4, 2015
Best Answer: the US-05 yeast has an alcohol tolerance of approximately 12% abv and could be used in beers up to that point.

Is this as good as liquid yeast?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: Dry yeast can make beer every bit as good as liquid yeast, especially this strain which is equivalent to both Wyeast 1056 American Ale and White Labs California Ale.

Do I need to rehydrate?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: This is a heavily debated topic, but we recommend you just pitch it right in to the cooled wort. When rehydrating there is a risk of the water being too hot and killing the yeast, where there is no such risk with adding it directly. Pitching yeast directly may cause a little stress for the yeast, but it will save you a lot of stress in the end.

I smacked the packet but my yeast is not inflating, why?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: Don't worry, dry yeast does not come in a smack pack like Wyeast. No activation is needed. Smacking it will only make your hand sore.
