I was recently given a quote for an 18-13-0-7S. What exactly will the sulfer do to kentucky bluegrass? Does it help add color without the growth? Does it make grow faster? Any input would be appreciated.

It is my understanding that sulfur is used like lime to less'n soil ph. Sulfur is used when you have an alkaline PH in your soil. Other than that it doesn't really do much. I know its a essential nutrient for plants in general but I don't think it has any major impact on a specific grass just soil.

Sulfur is required by the plant to synthesize proteins. Sulfur deficiency will disrupt protein synthesis and will result in poor plant growth. In KBG, powdery mildew will increase in a sulfur deficient state.
