How well did you aerate that wort? In my experience, I also used a packet of S04 on a 2.5 gal batch of IPA. OG: 1.070, FG came out to 1.020. The Fermentation was fast and vigorous, only about 5 days that were noticeable. This yeast is a low to medium attenuator, and a highly flocculant strain. I was a little worried, about the high FG for an IPA, but time will tell. Im bottling it in 3 days.

Wait, 1.095 to 1.016 is over 80% attenuation isn't it? Honestly with 2 lbs of crystal, no simple sugar, and an extract batch I'd say there's no way you're going to get to 1.016 no matter what strain and how much you pitch. I'd be surprised if you get it under 1.020. Not that it will be bad, I just think we need to be realistic here.

Edit : okay, just realized someone resurrected a zombie today. I guess this batch is long gone.

Yeah, was going to reply with a bit of info on S-04, I came across the other day, that implied S-04 is only really good up to 6.5% ABV but realized the OP probably had no need for this info now
