White Labs equivalent of Denny's fave50?

Does anybody know what the equivalent would be? My LHBS doesnt carry wyeast and I want to brew a nice clean American Ale this weekend.

I dont beleive there is a White Labs equivelant to WY1450. I think it is exclusive to Wyeast. I am sure Denny will have a definate answer.

If you are limited to whitelabs or dry yeast I would use.
WLP001 or US-05

Ok thanks. Us-05 it is then.

As far as I know, there is no Whitelabs equivalent. I only gave the yeast to Wyeast, so White would have to acquire it elsewhere.

Ok thanks Denny.

Hmm…I wasn’t aware that you actually provided the culture. I assumed it came from someone formerly with Brewtek. If you don’t mind my asking, why no White? Do you have some kind of exclusivity with Wyeast?

Nope. I know Dave Logsden, who owned Wyeast at the time. I asked him if they were interested and once there was no other commercial source, he said he was. I gave him the culture I had. It’s just that simple.

Gotcha. I imagine there are some other geeks out there who must have their own cultures, but it’s pretty neat to consider that you were one of a very few to possess a strain that was that close to disappearing from the marketplace.

I’ve only every used it for your RIPA recipe (which I’ve also made with 1272/WLP51), and I sure like the results!
:cheers:
Now that my local source appears to be dried up, I’ll have to think about trying to bank it next time I get some. I don’t mind spending money on ingredients, but it really irks me to pay more for shipping than for the product itself :frowning: .
