In a few months I'll be trashing my harvested yeast and buying new.
I've used WLP 001, 1272, and WLP 320, and have liked them all. All of my beers have been an American styled beer, but I'd like to make an ESB, English IPA, and maybe an Irish and Scotch ale.
For an English strain I am thinking of US-04. Maybe I won't make an Irish or Scotch ale.
Should I consider any other clean type of American yeasts or go with the ones I have? And as for the wheat yeast, I liked how it didn't have a clove/banana taste. Originally I was after 1010, but they were out.
As room is an issue I can't keep a huge variety.
What strains should I consider? I like clean, high attenuation/flocculation yeasts. I want 2 American ale, 1 American wheat yeast, 1 English yeast, and one more yeast that I'm not settled on style for.
