Sort of like S-04?

Or use a hydrometer?

Come on, you say you Know...yet you did exactly what a noob who doesn't know any better does, try to fix something that may not even be broken to begin with, just because you are impatient.

Back to mr beer for you....your allgrain card is revoked.
What can I say??

S-04 is the same as Wyeast 1099 from what I understand, which is Whitbread. 1098 is Whitebread Dry. It's drier, attenuates more, along the lines of Wyeast 1056 or Safale US 05. I haven't used Wyeast 1099 or Safale S 04, but they supposedly attentuate a bit less.

1098 is pretty clean, not a lot of esters or mineral or other Brit character. Can't say with S-04 if it's like that. I hear S 04 is "bready".

You can read Wyeast's or White Labs website info and they give pretty good descriptions of what the yeast character is like. If you want more Brit character, go more for one that says it has that rather than one that says it's "neutral, clean".

I think I may start a "Revvy's Regression Award" for any more "experienced" brewers who take a step back and do something that they clearly new better, and did any way.

You've inspired me.

The yeast will win. You likely over-pitched. I recently did a similar thing except I started with a washed cake (so I had a ton of yeast to begin with) but it didn't start quickly so I pitched a packet of S-04. The beer was fine.
