My local HBS doesn't have Montrachet Wine Yeast. I have no idea about the yeast. Is this easily substituted? If so, what should I ask for in general?
Champagne yeasts are a common sub, but I've never used them myself.
I've had good luck with 3068 (weizen).
I have used Lavin EC-1118. and cote Des Blanc with wonderful results.

Went to my LHBS and I told them I needed Red Star Monrachet. He gave me Lalvin k1-v1116 and said it was almost the same. Haven't tried it yet but I have no reason not to believe him.

Has anyone ever used Steinberg? Any thoughts on this?
I've not used Steinberg. I have a batch going where I'm using Saflager 34/70, fermenting in the mid-50's. It's happily bubbling away, so I have every reason to believe we're gonna get booze.
Im a little while into the fermentation now, and I can say that it doesnt smell like elephant farts. It has a slight sour smell, but that is it. Nothing overpowering.
