How to rehydrate s-04?

Rehydrating Prior To Pitching Sprinkle the yeast into 10 times its weight (115ml for 1 sachet) of sterile water or boiled wort at a temperature of 25 to 29°C (77°F to 84°F). Leave the yeast for 15 – 30 minutes before swirling the vessel and pitching into the wort.

What strain is s-04?

Safale S-04 English ale yeast has a fast fermentation and high flocculation rate. This ale yeast is recommended for a large variety of ale beers and it’s especially well adapted to cask-conditioned ales.

What temp to pitch safale s-04?

Fermentis SafAle™ S-04 Yeast Pitching/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.

What is the alcohol tolerance of Safale s-04?

What does yeast attenuation mean?

Attenuation is the degree to which yeast ferments the sugar in a wort or must. If you have 50% attenuation it means that 50% of the sugars have been converted into alcohol and CO2 by yeast. If you have 100% attenuation, all of the sugars have been consumed by yeast.

How long does Safale yeast last?

Shelf life 36 months from production date. Refer to best before end date printed on the sachet.

Can you get rid of diacetyl in beer?

However, just as the yeast produces diacetyl, it will also get rid of it. You must let the fermented beer sit on the yeast for two or three days after the termination of fermentation. This is called the diacetyl rest. The yeast will scrub the diacetyl out of the beer that it produced.

What causes under attenuation?

Generally, when brewers experience diminished attenuation, there are two likely causes: low wort fermentability or poor yeast performance. Low fermentability can be a result of the ingredients or, for all-grain brewers, hot side processes.
