Well I guess I'm going to find out why everyone hates it! Shoot.

It's my go to yeast for my stout. I like the flavour. It goes even better when I add coffee to the stout.

I have made it in a bitter that I didn't love so haven't made since but i've used it >5X in that stout.

I tasted my gravity sample last night on my Hobgoblin and it was exquisite. It might drop a few more points but the flavor I've got now is perfect. S-04 continues to be a winner for me.

Hey TacoGuthrie, how long does it take till your stouts start to taste right using his yeast?

I primary for 2 weeks and then keg. They taste right as soon carbed, usually a week but they taste BEST after another 3 weeks in the keg. I wouldn't call them tart or sour or any other words used itt though.

I find this is true for all my beer, even ipas.

Hey...go Postal Service....

Have the S-04 In my zombie dust clone. The airlock smells awesome...like a fruit roll-up.
Well see when I taste it today when I take gravity. Used this yeast along time ago when I brewed brewers best California blonde ale. It tasted awesome then. This thread is kind of pointless now.its a matter of people's tastes in my opinion.

Different strokes for different folks....u say tomato I say....u get the point.

LOL, why did I read this post. I just made Common Room ESP last night with the subject yeast, and am at about 64-66 degrees. Hope I don't have a mess on my hands.

A month and a half after bottling my sweet potato porter I can say that I do taste a little sharp malty aftertaste from S-04 that I have to "remove" by pouring aggressively - it's definitely not from the 1.5lbs of Munich (6g batch)! Fermented at 62F.

I think I'll stick to US-05 and WLP004.

Man! You guys are not loving s-04 like DR. Dre is not loving police. Sadly, I also don't care for 04. That's just me though. Not into beers with a fruity finish.
