wlp500 absolutely is my favorite yeast. It is the Chimay yeast indeed. It's fruity and earthy and wonderful.

I am a huge fan of the WYeast 1762. I get this big prune/date aroma off it when I ferment warmer, and it attenuates very well. It brought my Belgian Strong Dark from 1.094 to 1.014!

I used Wyeast 1762 Abbey II in a DIPA and it was awesome.

I've got a BDS aging right now. Fermented with Wyeast 3787. Haven't tried it yet, but it smells awesome.

That sounds interesting! What was the recipe? I have sort-of a Belgian IPA fermenting with it right now.

3787 or 1214 are the two I use most often.

I built up Ommegang's yeast from a bottle of their Abbey Ale and brewed a few batches from it. It made some really nice fruity flavors and gave a lot of depth. I'll probably do it again soon since I'm getting a lab slowly pieced together.

Hands down that yeast is bad a**. I made a patersbier with it and was blown away at the character it gives to the beer. Also you can ferment it cool at 64 or so or ferment it at 78 and see how the ester profile changes. Awesome yeast.
