SafAle S-04 English Ale Dry Yeast
A SUITABLE BREWER’S YEAST FOR ENGLISH & AMERICAN ALES
Safale S-04 English ale yeast has a fast fermentation and high flocculation rate. This ale yeast is recommended for a large variety of ale beers and it's especially well adapted to cask-conditioned ales.
S-04 is well-known for its fast fermentation character and its ability to form a very compact sediment (trub) at the end of the fermentation, helping to improve beer clarity. As mentioned above Safale S-04 is a great choice for the production of a large range of ale beers (Stouts, Porters, Brown Ale, & Mild) and is especially well adapted to cask-conditioned ales and fermentation in cylindroconical tanks. High sedimentation. Optimum fermentation temperature: 59°-68° F
- Fermentation Temperature: 59–68F
- Attenuation: 72–82%

Not sure which product or the operator to blame. But several bottles, that were sealed properly, we are flat. Was it a yeast problem?
Awesome yeast, 04 and 05 cane make almost any beer out there.
I had been a advocate of liquid yeast for 25 years. I have discovered that it has a short shelf life and I had several pack "fail to start". I began sourcing all my ingredients through Northern Brewer and decided to try dry yeast in the summer months. I could not be happier with the results. With good aeration and some yeast nutrient it takes off as strong and faster than the liquid yeasts. No worries about it getting hot in shipping or getting old in the fridge if you have a brew backlog. Give it a try.
Yeast works great. All I ever use, especially in summer.
