recommended fermentation temperature for that yeast is 59-75, but I prefer to ferment at about 62-64 as i feel i will end up with cleaner flavors. Remember that if the room is 62, the wort temperature will be much higher due to the yeast activity.

I like US-05 at about 62-64 for good clean results. This is beer temp, not ambient air temp. Remember that during active fermentation the beer may be 5-10 degrees higher than ambient due to its exothermic nature.

I just fermented US-05 at 64 degrees. The flavor is good. I thought it may have a little "tartness". Not sour. I have become a fan of US-05.

I live how clean S-05 has been in my last few brews. One thing i found with this recipe is it takes about 4weeks fir the corn taste to settle out. I love this as my after work chill beer.

This is VERY noticable for me as well! I bottle condition and it is way too fruity and tart until it has aged at least 4 weeks, better at 6 weeks before chilling and drinking. It just keeps getting crisper and cleaner tasting the longer it ages.

I brewed this with twice the amount of hops and there is hardly any bitter at all. This beer really reminds me of PBR. I think you could try alternate hops but i think the beer is too thin to get fancy with. I have another cream ale recipe that has a little.more body and sweetness that allows for fancy hop additiins. I love it with cascade hops

Brewing 10 gal batch of this now.

Don't have brewing software but I just multiplied the original recipe by .87 to get a 10 gal batch.

I also didn't use minute rice but flaked rice. Hope that is fine.

I'm wondering if I'm crazy for starting a 10 gal batch at 4 pm and doing another 10 gal Nut Brown Ale after... hoping this won't be a marathon!
