In a choice of S-04 and Nottingham, I'd use S-04 for both.

Go with the S-04 on the ESB and the Notty on the Stout. You'll want some ester profile in the ESB and the roasted malts will cover most of that in the Stout anyway.

I voted the same, although as much as everyone loves S-04 I haven't had good results from it yet, but I'm still trying. Nottingham does very well for me though.

I say Notty for the ESB, a little drier finish. S-04 on the Stout, a little more malty.

I don't think S-04 reacts too well to temperature fluctuations or if it's too cold (62*F vs 68*F)

Nottingham just doesn't care. I'm pretty sure it could ferment a rock given the right hydration process.

I'd rather have a sweeter stout and a drier ESB.

+1 Notty is just a machine in the Yeast world
I have made quite a few Stouts and have always used Notty with good results.

I just brewed an oatmeal stout using Weyermann smoked malt and Wey. grains. I used WYeast #1007 "German Ale." It's not finished fermenting yet, but based on preliminary tastes I really like what's going on there. I think it's a good match so far.

Nottingham has a slight "dry English" character to it IMHO and I *believe* it's what I used for a recent ESB of my own. I'd have to check my notes at home to be sure. The S-04 is more "bready" so I think it'd pair better with the Oatmeal.


I'd use the S-04 for the OS and Notty for the ESB.

Both are good choices for the S-04. My last two oatmeal stouts have been two of my favorite brews and both used S-04. However if you had to chose then I would use the S-04 for the more character in the ESB and use Notty in the Stout where the grain based flavors are more dominate.
