There wasn't a huge taste difference for me. In fact I like the taste of the dry yeast-ed beer a little more then the huge yeast slurry beer.
I got the yeast slurry from a local micro brewery. They gave me about a quart.
Kona, Fire Rock IPA I made with the yeast slurry.
Cascades / Orange Pale Ale I made with Safale-04 dry yeast.
It could be I just like one recipe over the other. But its so close; so cheers to Safale dry yeast.
