Default Porter Yeast

All,

I am still pretty new to AG brewing and am attempting to brew a porter for the fall. I plan to have a recipe that accents some roasty, chocolate, and coffee notes. I may use Jamil's recipe for a robust porter or something similar. I have recently tried to support a new LHBS and they work mostly with White Labs liquid yeast. I have to ability to creat a starter and I built a fermentation chamber to control my fermentation temps. What are your favorite yeasts for a porter? Especially those from white labs...

Thanks!

Whitbread makes a great porter. London ale as well. Not many uk strains won't work in a porter though.

I have a robust fermenting right now. Was a Founder's Porter clone using WLP001. I also used MO as the base. It's only been 2 weeks in primary and tastes fantastic.

I just kegged jamils chocolate hazelnut minus the hazelnut using wlp001 with a starter. Possibly the best beer I've brewed.

I've made more neutral flavor porters (similar to Deschutes Black Butte Porter) using wyeast 1056, so the whitelabs 001 would be the equivalent IIRC.

I use ESB 1968 London yeast for everything I brew. High flocking, medium attenuation, and malt flavors are usually quite forward.

Looks like we a few different options. Thanks for the feedback. Just out of curiosity..it appears white labs only rates wlp 001 at a 2 out of 4 on the website yet many people use it. Does anyone know why it isn't rated as more of a fit for this style?? I even looked and it is the yeast of choice for this style on Brewing Classic Styles.

I've done several robust porters using WY1968. I've never been disappointed. In fact, I have a Dark Chocolate Hazelnut in secondary now. It's going to a keg for conditioning on Wednesday. The SG samples were very tasty!
