I am looking to try my first partial mash brew and plan on using the Speckled Heifer partial mash kit. There are three choices for yeast. Does it matter which one I use or is there one that would provide a better beer? The three options are SafeAle US-05, Omega West Coast Ale, and Wyeast 1056 American Ale. Any help would be appreciated.
Also, Most 5 gal extract kits I've seen use 2.5 gal for the mash. Should I use a similar volume for this kit then top up to 5 gal in the fermentor?
Thanks for the help guys.
