Sterling 514 Yeast
 
Just saw that AHS has this in stock. I've never heard of it before and Google has failed me. Any info or experience??

New Sterling 514 English Ale Dry Yeast
You have been asking for it, and now Austin Homebrew Supply has an exclusive on it!

A clean English dry yeast with very high flocculation properties.

- Flocculation: High
- Attenuation: High
- Ideal Fermentation Temp.: 61-75 F
- Alcohol Tolerance: 9.5%

Sounds really easy to use. Floccs and attenuates well and has a large temp. range. Interesting!

robtotten 08-25-2011 05:59 AM

Maybe a Pacman strain? Wyeast suggests 60-72 ferm temp and it attenuates / flocs well. That would also explain the "you've been asking for it!" comment.

Google worked pretty well for me:

Other than "514" appearing in both how can you be sure they are the same?. The Australian company doesn't have the word "Sterling" anywhere on it's site.

"Sterling" sounds like a marketing touch

And the last post in this thread at aussiehomebrewer kind of confirms that.

Still, how is it different from S-04?

Yeah, I guess I'm wanting that little sales pitch that says why I should buy this. Given the variation of english yeasts available, it would be helpful to know what it is similar to and what the differences are.
