cbehr, The difference between S-04 and 3942 is night and day. Both will yield excellent beers with this recipe. I will say again, I think this thread needs to drop the "Blue Moon Clone" from the title since the original recipe posted (although delicious) is not at all like a Blue Moon. Here are my results from using each yeast with this recipe:
S-04: Sweeter, soft fruit + citrus flavors, coriander snap, malty, soft hop bitterness
3942: Dry, light, soft citrus flavors, stronger Belgian spice presence, coriander snap, soft hop bitterness
If you are looking for a Blue Moon clone recipe, read this thread:
This turned out much closer to Blue Moon for me.
