Favorite Dry Yeast
 
What would you consider your go-to dry yeast in terms of reliability, versatility, and flavor? Something that you would buy a few packs of to keep around the house. What do you like about it?

Interesting idea, if refrigerated is dry yeast good indefinitely? I would like to buy a whole box of safale 05 if it would save me some coin.

I keep mine in the freezer and I'm almost certain I'll use it up before it begins to go bad. The bulk buying does save money...

Nottinghams. Quick, easy, cheap, and always a sure thing.

Where do you buy it bulk? Do you just ask your LHBS to order it in for you?
