Default Washed yeast...Now how to use??

So I just recently washed some safale US-05 and have only used it in BM's cream of three crops. Im wondering what else I can use this yeast in. Im planning on a oatmeal stout next. So what styles can this particular yeast be used for, or whats the best I should say?

US-05 is in a lot of recipes, shouldn't be too hard to find something. Its the Sierra Nevada yeast, so anything in their styles maybe?

05 is an American Ale yeast.

What you've got there is probably the most commonly used homebrew yeast, at least in the US.

It is the Sierra Nevada yeast. Anything they brew can be brewed with this yeast from Pale Ales to Porters, Stouts, & Barleywines.

As long as you're not looking for an English style oatmeal stout, it'll be fine.

You use us-05 whenever you want a clean, neutral yeast profile. It is the famed California "chico" strain, and it's used in a majority of american ales. I use 05 for probably 90% of my beers. If you are going for an american version of a particular style, then yes you would use it, or nottingham. If you are aiming for a more british version of a style then you use something like us-04, or windsor.English ales tend to have a more "bready" character.

So if you want a stout like one by Rogue, or an American Microbrewery, you would use 05....If you want to make something like and irish or english stout, then you would use something else.

Is there a reason that you are washing dry yeast.?Why not just spend $1.75 on another packet?

I haven't washed dry yeast myself, but would like to know where you are getting your US-05 for $1.75 a packet. It's about double that everywhere I've seen.
