Rated 5 out of 5 by Texnixon from Looks good I started my brew yesterday, a honey ale. I just checked on it, and it is beautiful. This yeast seems to be working wonderfully. There is a wonderful on top of the wort, just like I was hoping for. The folks at Mr. Beer are great to work with. They formulated the recipe for me. I am really looking forward to trying it in a couple of weeks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MightyKTC from Good for Bocks! Was happy that the Blackeye Bock came with this yeast to use because I was hoping for a british-style dry ale with a little bit amount of sweetness and a lot of malt and this delivered! Very clean beer compared to some other Mr. Beer recipes and I have to believe this yeast had something to do with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by David Z from Part of M&B Cream Ale Recipe This yeast strain worked well with the M&B Cream Ale recipe. It's a very standard strain, so not a lot different that I can tell. I haven't really gotten into changing the yeast strains yet; one step at a time!

I’ve got an extra S-04 and thought about using it in a batch of Diablo IPA. Yay or nay?
There is really no reason why you could not use S-04 in Diablo IPA. It may punch up some of those "fruitier" notes as well. Cheers!

I am making 24 liters with the S-04. Making the Munich Malt Monster Doppel bock. Do I need just one pack or three?
I'm answering my own answer. One packet is good for two batches. So, two packets for three batches, or 24 liters.
