Default Which yeast to use?

I'm planning to do a ale version of a Schwarzbier. There are three yeasts one in my fridg and two at the LHBS.

S04 ( I have this)
S05 and SAFBREW S33 (from LHBS)

It's to expensive to just order one an another yeast online.

What would you use?

0.80 lb Pilsner (2 Row) Ger (2.0 SRM) Grain 45.45 %
0.70 lb Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 39.77 %
0.13 lb Carafa II (412.0 SRM) Grain 7.39 %
0.13 lb Melanoiden Malt (20.0 SRM) Grain 7.39 %
0.20 oz Pearle [8.00 %] (60 min) Hops 27.9 IBU
0.20 oz Hallertauer [4.80 %] (10 min) (Aroma Hop-Steep) Hops -
2.00 oz Malto-Dextrine (Boil 5.0 min) Misc

S-04 would be fine if I was doing it as a Ale. You brew small batches so why spend extra for a different yeast.

Agreed - S-04 will do the job just fine.

Yep. If I happened to have nottingham, I'd use that and ferment it at 57 degrees because that would make it "lagerlike". Nottingham makes very clean ales when it's fermented under 60 degrees. However, if you don't have that, S04 will do the trick. Keep it under 65 degrees if possible, and it'll be pretty clean and leave a nice clear beer.

Thanks, I'm going in tomorrow and I think I'll take the nottingham for $3.75 and save the S04 for more English brews.


Would lhave liked a German yeast but there are non here on the island. I did use a pack of Munich yeast for my Roggensbier which I bought on line. Should have bought a few packs then.

S-04 is nice under 65, if temps are an issue then cough up the dough for some S-05 (its more temp tolerant than notty imo). Is there no K-97 available where you are? It is basically a dry version of Wyeast 1007 from what I have been told.

One of my favourite kits before I went AG was Festa Brew's DO Stout. Really love that beer; it comes with S-33 so I'll vote for that. Currently doing my first beer with S-04 (an ESB) and it seems to be performing well.

Nope, the only way to get it would be online and then add $5.75 or so for shipping. ONly can order "light" stuff and then try to fill the envelope (Priorty Mail) until the price jumps.
