Bottle conditioning with S-04 yeast possibly

Post by IPeamon » Fri Jul 22, 2011 11:58 am

Do people think S-04 yeast would be a sufficient yeast to bottle an IPA of SG 1.076. The reason Im adding fresh yeast at bottling is that the last time I made a hefty IPA, there was no carbonation after five weeks. I added champagne yeast to the bottles and it turned out fine but very cloudy. I know S-04 flocculates well but is it alcohol tolerant enough.

I've never used S-04 in such a high gravity beer, but that's not so high that I wouldn't expect it to work fine.
