Default Anyone else love S04?

Ive used it for the last 3 or 4 batches, and every time it explodes, clears fast, and tastes friggin' great.

Definitely my new go-to. Just felt the need to say profess my love for this yeast

Yes, I am also impressed with this dry yeast and quite agree with you that it starts quickly, ferments strongly and quickly, and also flocculates pretty well.

Very new to this hobby but have used S-04 in every batch, but one, that I've done so far and it hasn't let me down with regards short lag time, vigorous attenuation and producing a couple of batches, already, that have some great flavours.

US05 is also spectacular.

In fact, all of Fermentis' yeasts are great.

Used S04 for the first time last Saturday for an oatmeal stout. Pitched dry. Come Sunday, that sucker was going crazy!! I couldn't believe the airlock activity! Then, Sunday night it was pretty much all spent. Looking forward to tasting the results.

I use it often. If it's fermented cool (65 or so), it's not estery and it leaves a super clear beer with a tightly compacted yeast cake.

Yup. With the exception of two batches, S-04 and US05 all the way.

Yep, I find the same thing. Kegged a beer last night and had a little trouble breaking it up for washing!
