Safale US-05 ale yeast is a ready-to-pitch American ale yeast for well balanced beers with low diacetyl and a very crisp end palate. If you can not ensure cool brewing conditions for your lagers, try using the Safale US-05 yeast at the coolest temperature you can produce, to produce a neutral flavoured lager, without the fruitiness that comes from ale yeasts.
Ideal Fermentation Temperature is 15-22°C. The more cool the fermentation, the more neutral the flavours produced.
