Default Yeast

What yeasts have high resistance to alcohol, I feel like making something with a lot of kick to it.

look at the 'strong ale', 'barley wine' and 'belgian ale' strains.

EEK! Don't use a Belgian yeast unless you are making a Belgian. You can also start an ale with your favorite yeast and add a packet of white wine yeast after a week.

Are there any wheat yeasts that have high alcohol tolerances?

I brewed a Double IPA with an OG of 1.087 and after 1.5 weeks in primary it was down to the intended FG of 1.016. Done with dry Nottingham yeast.

My German Chocolate Stout started at 1.074 and it was at 1.018 after 3 days using Nottinghams dry as well. Its gonna finish at 8.5-9% alcohol!!! That'll knock the socks off you.

Yep. Figured I'd try one really big beer before going back to other beers.

It's dry hopped in the secondary now. Be ready to bottle in a few weeks.

Thanks for the heads up on some strong yeasts, I have a strong feeling there are going to be good times and lost memories in the near future.
