Homebrewers love this commercial English Ale yeast for its big, clean flavor; its rapid fermentation; and its highly flocculant character.
Widely recommended for practically any American or English style beer, S-04 yeast a rapid starter and finisher which settles out extremely well, leading to a clean finished beer. Great to keep a few packets as back-ups or just to use as a less-expensive alternative to liquid cultures.
The manufacturer states the strain is directly pitchable. For activation or proofing, suspend yeast in 4 oz of warm water (85-100F). Do not stir. Let stand for 15 minutes then stir gently. Add an equal amount of wort to your solution. Cover, let sit for five minutes, and pitch.
Recommended temperature range: 64F-72F.

Great quality.
Great quality expires in mid 2020 which is great for me. Most important is shipping was fast.

This worked great for a winter warmer I brewed. I like using dry yeast and making a starter 2 days before brewday

Super fast
Fast, violent fermentation. Use a blow off hose, not an airlock. Flocculates quickly and completely. Will use again.

Had very good experiences with this yeast great attenuation for English style beers or for those seeking that flavor in their own recipes.

It's a workhorse
Whatever styles you're prone to brewing and yeasts that you usually use, every home-brewer should have a packet of S04 and S05 in the fridge. Great in a bind, and can work wonders for improvised brew days.
