Let me reemphasize my previous post...the S-04 is performing flawlessly. Surprisingly clean, with absolutely ZERO off flavor, i.e., bready notes. None at all.
It is working so well that we will continue using S-04. In fact, the flavor profile is nearly the same as Wyeast London Ale. Yes, I have used both of these and did a side-by-side taste test.
My ferment temperature is 56 degrees, which is working just fine.
The Porter has another 10 days to go, and if there any changes in a negative way, you will be the second to know.
But that’s just my single data point.
