I know s-04 gets a bit of stick but would this yeast be best for my next stout?
Well im planning on an guiness extra stout from graham wheeler BYOBA book.I've done stouts with S04 with good results. What kind of stout are you planning? That should influence what you want from the yeast.
Not many ways to mess up a stout, TBH, the Coopers Stout kit always got good reviews for this reason.I don't think it matters much as there's so much flavour from the stout that any yeast flavours would be swamped out. I've used SO4, US-05 and Gervin. All were fine.
As you know, I've had great results with M36 for more fruity stuff; so M42 looks interesting, but I think it will have to provide something special to beat Wilko's Nottingham in the value stakes when looking for a neutral ale yeast.I'm going to be trying Mangrove Jacks M42 New World Strong Ale in the stout I have planned as my next brew. Excellent reputation for good attenuation, excellent flocculation and been nice and neutral. Not tried it yet though, so less a recommendation than just a passing comment.
