Posted in thread: Does anyone else dislike US-05? on 06-29-2016 at 04:49 PM
I thought so too, until today. Previously I'd used 05 often and had great results with no

I like US-05 just fine. I ferment at ~65 and haven't noticed any significant fruity esters. All
my beers get Whirlfoc, cold crashed to 0 degrees, and gelatin, and with that regimen my US-05

I've been doing 2.75-gal batches in my 5gal pot and I think I'm just about maxing it out, so

age for sever...
