Post by: Ck27 on October 02, 2017, 06:10:57 PM
Just wanting to get some forum action going so I'm going to ask what everyones favorite yeast is or rather the one that you use the most??

You can fill out the poll or answer below if your choice is not available.

Thanks

I don't have a favorite yeast. I brew lots of different styles, from Stouts a to ESBs to IPAs to California Commons. I pick a yeast that will work with the style, and that means I use a lot of different yeasts. I brewed an IPA a few weeks ago and used WLP001, which I have used many times before (mostly for IPAs). I brewed a Brown Ale yesterday with WY1335, which I have never used before.

I guess I won't be able to pick a favorite until I have tried them all!!

I mainly use White Labs yeasts. My favorites are  WLP005 for English beers, WLP550 for Belgian beers and WLP838 for lagers. I also use WLP041 and WLP051.

I had to Google 005 couldn't remember what it was basically it's a super malty super flocculent yeast that easily falls out of beer, sounds like Wyeasts Ringwood lol.
