You can see from the attenuation levels that they are not the same yeast. My source was LHBS, so not entirely reliable.

007 is great tho.

cracked1, what LHBS do you use? I live in Caldwell, and would be interested in where you took the growler for a tasting. I'm always looking for feedback.

Wyeast says 1098 attenuation is 73% - 75%. White Labs says that 007 is 70% - 80%. Average for 1098 is 74%. Average for 007 is 75%. And, MrMalty lists them as similar to each other. I'm not saying that they are the exact same strain but I would bet that the difference between the two would be pretty minimal. I like this recipe enough that I'll definitely brew another batch so maybe next time I'll split it in two and try both yeasts. See if there is a noticeable difference.

Brewers Haven in Boise has tastings every Wednesday (free even!). Sometimes they pick a few from their 500+ beers and whoever brings in homebrew can have their's added to the mix. Some Wednesdays they have brewery tastings. Brewery reps show up and they give samples of some of their beers. Usually on those nights they give out raffle prizes and for the tasting they often use glasses from that brewery which you get to keep. I've been to Sam Adams, Stone, Lagunitas, Grand Teton and miscellaneous other tastings there. The regular tastings can be hit or miss as to the crowd. The brewery tastings get PACKED real quick.

For what it's worth, Jamil and the CYBI crew used WLP002 (Wyeast 1968, aka Fuller's strain) on the Deschutes clones. It is less attenuating than some strains but it seems they mash quite low to balance it out. Example:

The reference to Wyeast 1968 threw me. I was looking at that attenuation.

Lemme know how the experiment works out!
