Safale S-04 is an English ale yeast selected by Fermentis for its fast fermentation character and its ability to form a compact sediment at the end of fermentation, helping to improve beer clarity. Recommended for the production of a large range of ales and specially adapted to cask-conditioned ones and fermentation in cylindoconical tanks
Optimum Ferm Temp:12-25°C (53.6-77°F) ideally 15-20°C (59-68°F)
Tip: With all yeast you should do a starter. It will greatly increase the yeast count in your beer and therefore helping to ensure proper attenuation.
Rehydration instructions: Sprinkle the yeast in minimum 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort at 27°C ± 3°C (80°F ± 6°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.
