Used S-04 one time, and was quite pleased with the results. Very flocculant and resulted in a nice clear beer. Will give US-05 a try sometime soon.

Mostly agree that Fermentis' yeasts are great. S-23 is tempermental for a lager yeast but is great for those who need to do lagers in the mid-50s. W-34/70 is my workhorse; I absolutely love it. Got some S-189 on order that I'm really looking forward to trying.

I also use US05, S04, and W-34/70. My main three yeasts I use -- however, WL090 (SDSY) is starting to take over US05 for me.

Sounds awesome. Unfortunately, I don't have a lagering setup at the moment, but I googled that yeast and it sounds great!

I use it in all my wheats, and they always turn out great. Tastes a lot like New Belgium Mothership.

I'm a big Fermentis fan. US-05 is my "house" yeast. I have a batch of British-style pale ale going with S-04 right now. I've used S-33 and WB-06 and enjoyed them. I'm a bout to do a California Common and, after doing some research, decided I'll again turn to Fermentis and use S-23.

Just moved ( a couple days ago) a Mirror Pond Ale clone from a primary to keg for dry hop/secondary/conditioning. Being the cheap person I am, I saved the yeast cake into a couple Sterilized Mason Jars (which are sitting loosely capped in my Refrigerator). So, anyone out there have recommendation for other All Grain recipe's using US-04? (I've got plenty of grains and hops to choose from). By the way, the Mirror Pond FG reading was 1.008 and the sample tasted wonderful!
