Safale S-04 - Ale Beer yeast
11.5g sachet of Safale S-04 - Ale Beer yeast. A well-known, commercial English ale yeast, selected for its fast fermentation character and its ability to form a very compact sediment at the end of the fermentation, helping to improve beer clarity. This yeast is recommended for the production of a large range of ale beers where big flavor is desired. Used in test batches here at B3 we were pleased with the clean flavor. Initial customer feedback has also been very high.
Yeast ( Saccharomyces cerevisiae ), emulsifier E491
ideally 15-20°C (59-68°F)
50 to 80 g/hl in primary fermentation
Sprinkle the yeast in minimum 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort at 25 to 29°C (77°F to 84°F ). Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel. Alternatively, pitch the yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20°C (68°F) . Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes, then mix the wort using aeration or by wort addition.
