Default pretty specific yeast question

Does anyone know the alcohol % tolerance of wyeast 1335 British Ale II yeast? I know this is a really specific question, but I couldn't find an answer on the wyeast web page.

Up next: Big Brew Off competition between me and Kaptain Karma as one team, and my two roommates as another--We'll be brewing Pale Ales with specifications on malts, hops, and total yeild to see who's version is better (and to end up with ten total gallons of great beer).
Also up soon: Belgian Dubbel
Primary: Grampa's Woodshed Apple Smoked Porter
Secondary: Zombiefoot California Common, Chocolate Strong Porter
Drinking: Seamus O'Drunkagan Irish Red, Humble Pie Imperial Stout, Capricorn IPA

You may wanna check the byo.com website. Their last issues was all about yeast strains, but I don't remember what all stats they provided. It may at least point you in the right direction to finding your answer.

I can't find the info either, but I've found that any yeast that doesn't claim to be a high ABV yeast dies around 6.5-7%. If there are specific characteristics of this yeat you want for a heavier ale, just pitch a neutral white wine yeast after the bubbling slows.


Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
