Famous Sierra Nevada Chico yeast strain found in beers across America. It produces well balanced beers with low diacetyl and a very clean, crisp end palate.
Also sold as White Labs WLP001 California Ale and Wyeast 1056 American Ale. US-05 was formerly called US-56, but was likely renamed because it sounded too much like "1056". For a comparison of these strains see our US-05 vs WY1056/WLP001 tests.
This is a yeast we use a lot so we purchase it in 500g bricks (to save money) and then re-package. For complete details see our Storing Hops and Dry Yeast article.
