Default Styles of beer for Pacman Yeast.

I have a Dead Guy Ale in the primary right now. I want to attempt my first time to yeast wash. What styles would be good for Pacman Yeast?

As I understand it Pacman is known for very clean fermentation, and also very high attenuation. So pretty much anything you would use CA ale yeast WLP001 for is a good candidate so long as you are OK with the high attenuation and higher alcohol level. There are many many styles you could use it for. I believe many think it is a selectively mutated version of WLP001 selected for it's high attenuation.

I brewed an Arrogant Bastard Clone with it, just a shade under 8% ABV.

American Wheat. Or any other "American" style where the flavor is not predominately caused by the yeast.

And you could do what Rogue does for some of their beers...basically make a 'lager' but use Pacman yeast and ferment cool. Is it DGA that is essentially a Maibock but with Pacman and fermented @ ~60 F? I know one of their beers fits that description. I've never had any Rogue beer...but I've made several brews with Pacman (mostly APAs and Foreign Extra Stouts).

Yeah...it's dead guy that is a Maibock with Pacman.

Centennial Blonde is good with Pacman. I also have my Pale Rye Ale conditioning with it now (+5 more jars in fridge waiting on something...)

I used it for my APA, then repitched it for an arrogant bastard clone. Both came out amazing.

I'm using my pacman cake for an IPA this week. I've used it in the past for many APAs and IPAs, with great results. It's very well attenuating, and very "clean" tasting, especially at cool temperatures.

So what vendors sell pacman? My LHBS may be out of US-05, which I was going to use for my IPA next week, so since i may have to order yeast anyways, I may as well give pacman a try.
