White labs california common

Trying to recreate a beer I made about 16 years ago. Back thenWhite labs only had one cal comm. yeast and it was called “california common”. Today there is california V, California ale, and San Francisco lager but no “california common”. Does anyone know what that strain was back then and what it is now? Also what is the Wyeast alternative.

I’m not sure about back then, but White Labs 810 (SF) is California Common. Wyeast 2112 is also CC yeast.

I believe the San Fransisco lager is the same as the California common of old.

From the website:

This yeast is used to produce the “California Common” style beer. A unique lager strain which has the ability to ferment up to 65 degrees while retaining lager characteristics. Can also be fermented down to 50 degrees for production of marzens, pilsners and other style lagers.
Attenuation: 65-70%
Flocculation: High
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 58-65°F

I believe they are one and the same.
