Default Subsitute stout yeast?

I'm planning on an extract and steeping grains sweet stout, so I went to a not so local HBS and bought pretty much one of every dry yeast they had.

I have Nottingham, Safbrew S33, Muntons, Muntons Gold, Safale US05, Safale S04, Coopers & Windsor.

However, none of these is the Irish ale yeast called for in the recipes. Will any of the above work? Or should just pitch some Coopers and call it a Porter? Or a very, very brown ale?


The recipe is 8 oz of Crystal 40L steeping, plus .25 lb each of chocolate & roasted barley, 1.5 oz. Kent Goldings 60 minutes, 1/2 oz. Kent Goldings 20 minutes, 1tsp gypsum and 2 lbs. of the dark LME at the start of the boil and the remaining 6 lbs. at 15 minutes. .5 oz Williamette as dry hop in the secondary

... fits nicely into a sweet stout profile:

OG: 1.056, FG: 1014, IBU 38, SRM: 50, AVB: 5.4

TIA

Just about any of those would work, but I'd do with the Nottingham. It won't be like the Irish though. Maybe the S04 would get you closest.

I'd agree...the S04 would prolly be the best but any of the ones you mentioned would make a great stout.

If you want a sweet stout though, pick one from the descriptions that doesn't attenuate as well as the others. Nottingham will make it drier for sure--not exactly sure about the others.

Windsor would attenuate the least.

I just used s-04 for my stout. Worked well.

Another vote for S-04. Haven't used it in a stout, but used it in a porter that came out very nicely.

Default Thanks for the suggestions

but unfortunately, I didn't see any of them until after this batch was in the primary. Closed my eyes and picked the Nottingham, so I guess its a RDWHAHB situation.


If its on the dry side, thats fine.
