Default Wyeast equivalent to White Labs 885 Zurich Lager?

Hi folks;

Can anyone suggest an equivalent Wyeast similar to 885 White Labs Zurich Lager? Looking to do a Samichlaus clone and the recipe I'm looking at calls for 885, which the recipe-provider (nod to Mark Sedam) says is 'the' yeast used because he cultured it and provided it to White Labs.

Hoping to brew this weekend and in my area, no time to order White Labs.


Primary: Dunkelweizen
Secondary: BrewHouse IPA
Forgotten about: Samichlaus
Keg: Special Bitter
Keg 2: American Barleywine
