Ok , I ordered a NB Cream Ale kit. The kit suggests Wyeast 1056 American Ale. I have on hand right now, White Labs WLP001 California Ale is this a good yeast for this beer? I would like to use the WL since I already have it.
Here is a listing of what different breweries use and a comparison of WY and WL strains.
Short answer, yes. If they are not the same they are vary similar. Use interchangeably.
