Default What is your favorite Yeast for GF Beer?

I have used Nottingham aaaaaannd that is it.

I have made 4 Ales (honey, Oats, etc) trying to stay low on the sorghum 50% or less.

But what Yeasts out there are best paired with Stouts, Laggers, IPAs, High gravity Beers, etc.

Happy Holidays.

I started out using Nottingham and Munich, but when they had the quality issues and followed that up with price increase, I swithed to the Safeale yeasts. I've used US-05, S-04, S-33 and T-58. I have some WB-06 on hand, but I haven't used it yet. I don't think I have a favorite, it is more dependant on the recipe.

Fermentis ale the way.

US-05, S-33 and WB-06 have all been good to me.

US-05 for all ipa's/pale ales
WB-06 for all wheat beer type recipes (recommend not using whirlfloc with this)
S-33 for belgian type stuff (and this)

I've had good luck with T-53 for my belgians, and S-04 for stout and a pale mild. I also made a good Hefe style with Danstar Munich.

I was somewhat less happy with my one attempt with Windsor, but I'm not sure I'd chalk that entirely up to the yeast, and I'm planning to try it again sometime.
