Yeast substitution question - bought wrong yeast

Recommended Posts

I went a bit nuts when the dry hop recipes came out and ordered ingredients individually to make a 3 IPA and a pale ale.

And, I stuffed up the yeast order.  I meant to order 4 x Y1 but ordered 4 x Y4.

I'm not super-keen on waiting 4 days and paying another $15 for Y1 yeast.  My choices are to run with Y4 yeast (hmm...) or, the local brew shop as Safale US-05 which on the face of it, looks like it might do the same thing anyway.

Thoughts?  I'll be more careful next order...

Hi dcm, Mark here. Personally I’d run with the Y4. Although a bit more vigorous both are ale yeasts, both ferment out clear, Y1 highlights hop characters whilst Y4 enhances hop aroma. 
Cheers
