Description

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.
 
This yeast can be pitched directly, but if you prefer to rehydrate, the instructions are below.
 
Sprinkle the yeast in a minimum of 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort (we suggest 4 oz) at 70°F to 77°F (21 to 25 °C). Do not stir. Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.
 
Recommended temperature range: 64F-72F.
 
*See the technical data sheet below for more information on rehydration, usage and storage.

Good reviews online, cheaper and more stable than liquid yeast and good track record. Is more expensive than other online companies though.
