Would the effect of mixing safale 05 and 04 on a 10 gallon batch blend the yeast or just?

It'll just mix. Brewers yeasts do not reproduce sexually, so it's not like you can create a new yeast strain by pitching them both and hoping they get it on.

Two yeasts enter, one yeast leaves.

One strain will dominate the other more than likely.

It's genius that borders on madness.

S-04 will most likely dominate the fermentation due to its fast fermentation & high flocculation. When it starts falling it's going to take the US-05 with it. Plus there won't be much left for the US-05 to dine on because S-04 ate it most of it. Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!
