Default favorite GP yeast

what's everyones favorite yeast?

I used to really like WL cali V, but it crapped out on me several times in a row and stopped fermenting and 1.020 ~ 1.015.

So I switched to WL german/koelsch, and while it ferments down a little lower, it doesn't compact nicely a the bottom of the fermenter. I have to say the cali V formed a nice SOLID cake.

Any other faves?

My ales are either hoppy or dark, so Nottingham serves me well.

I just used some white labs hefe and belgian wit yeast... the dunkelweizen came out GREAT! Nottingham's still takes the cake as its so versatile.
