The safale us-05 is yeast. Do you have another package of yeast that is 5gms? If they sent you two packages of yeast, I think I would pitch them both. Call or email the place you got it from to make sure.

I'm guessing that the can of LME came with a generic yeast but whoever put the kit together wants you to use the US-05. In my opinion the US-05 will tear through that wort before the other stuff wakes up.

US-05 is workhorse yeast. I use it with any American style.
