Product Details

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

Yeast Features:

  • Fermentation Temperature: 59–68F 
  • Attenuation: 72–82%
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 9-11%

Perfect strain to ferment:

  • Milds
  • Stouts
  • Porters
  • Brown Ales
  • NEIPA - New England IPAs

Been a long time a brewin

04 has always been reliable, which isn't always true with some of the pricier liquid yeasts (sometimes puffed-up and slow starting fermentation , and sometimes no fermentation. I typiclly mail order in beer supplies and srore yeast in the fridge for weeks if not months. S-04 has never failed me. Fermentation typically starts within 24hrs and FG ranges between 1.0020 and 1.0016.
