I'm want to do two new kits from midwestsupplies.com soon and I didn't know which yeast to get. The two ales are:
Irish Red Ale
Honey Amber Ale
and the choices for both are:
Wyeast American Ale 1056
WL California Ale 001
Has anyone had any success with these kits and certain kind of yeast? or have any thoughts on the matter?
Bottled: American Wheat
I have used Wyeast American Ale 1056 in many different styles with uniformly good results.
Regular dry Munton's doesn't have a great rep. Keep in mind that with liquid, you really should make a starter.
Does Midwest let you choose neither, and then buy a differetn dry? Safale 05 is the equivalent of those liquids.
You could also do Safale-05 or Nottingham for either of those if you don't want to do a liquid yeast.
Safale -04 for the Irish and Safale -05 for the Honey Amber.
Thanks everyone for the help. I'll let you know how these turn out.
