I haven't gotten the peach from US-05 yet, even though I've used it almost exclusively for over a year at different temperatures, typically on the lower end. But that may just be my palate being not very sensitive.


Don't listen to me, for all you know I'm just some random drunk with internet access.

Once i fermented a 1.060 beer in a 60F cellar with US05 and it smelled like peach for at least 3 months. It was my second brew so i under pitched, did not rehydrated, used no yeast food etc.

edit: nowadays i can do clean fermentations with us05 but it gets peachy again during bottle carbing and stays that way for at least 4 weeks

Thats a great question. I'd have to say no because it never happens during the warmer fermentations. I've actually picked up on this with a few commercial breweries as well. There is one local that will go unnamed, but they have some...lax practices according to a buddy who worked there and confirmed they are using chico. I've had friends that couldn't pick up on the "rotten fruit" from a very low fermentation. Perhaps I'm not describing it well, we all agreed it was unpleasant and detracting though

I have been pitching 2 packs of rehydrated US05 in 5.5gal. of 1.0570 beer at 67*F and fermenting at 62*F. The beer finished out at 1.008 and was very clean and crisp.

No peachy flavors or smells at all. I did bring the temp. up to around 72* after fermentation was about complete for clean up. Total time on yeast cake was 18 days then bottled.
