Right, that's why I wouldn't want to culture both if they use the same.
Thanks to everyone for all the responses. A little discouraged now because I feel like I need to ferment with 1056, 1272, AND Bell's yeast. Maybe I'll just leave out the 1968 ESB and make this an all-American comparison. Shock and awe, baby.
I'll probably get the Bell's from their Amber since most of their other beers are more extreme. That's crazy about Oberon using the same yeast, but a great lesson to homebrewers out there who don't practice fermentation temp control. I can't believe it's the same yeast.
