Default What's the Diff between 02 and 05

Making a southern english brown and am wondering the difference between WLP002 and WLP005. Anyone try them both and notice a difference?

I haven't used the 005 but I swear by the 002 for any English style ale.

What's the difference? Let's see...

WLP005 - WLP002 = WLP003

Sorry, its the mathematician in me.

lol @ math nerds

there will be differences with any yeast. here's a good yeast comparison chart to tell where they come from, which might give you an idea of the flavors they will give to your beer: http://kotmf.com/articles/yeastcomp.php

some people might be able to give you differences based on their experience, but reading the descriptions on the websites will help

http://whitelabs.com/beer/homebrew_strains.html

http://wyeastlab.com/hb_styleguidelines.cfm

and really the best way is your own experience. if you can't decide, you should make two batches of the same brew and use different yeasts that's where the fun comes in
