Which yeast is better for the beer style

I want to brew a porter and I have two yeast strains one is a harvested us05 and the other is a packet of s33 I was wondering very simply which one would be better for a robust porter. To be honest the reciple calls for us05 but I’m getting better at this whole brewing thing and want to experiment BUT I also don’t want to screw up. Any input wouldbe helpful

I have had good luck with the 33; ferments like a beast and is good for a full bodied beer that you want some mouthfeel in. I have used it in anything from a rasberry wheat to a pale.

Experimenting is what it is all about!

My personal tastes would lean toward the 05.

s-05.

1st you won’t screw up your beer which ever yeast you use but you will have 2 different beers from these yeasts. If your curious I would split the beer into different fermenters and use one yeast in each. When you do a side by side tasting after both beers are done, you will know which one to use on future batchs. BTW, most people are shocked at the difference a different yeast can make on the same wort. I know I was the first time I tried it.

us-05

I used US-05 for this batch. But that’s good advice for next time
