Default WLP500 not available at LHBS, WLP575 instead?


How much of a difference will the WLP575 make versus the WLP500 in the final flavor of the beer?

Can anyone recommend other possible substitutes?
Thanks

Default Amazing!!


Brewed 10 Gallons according to original post. I aged it for 2 months. I kegged 5 gallons, and bottled 5. For Thanksgiving the 13 people at my house drank the entire 5 gallons I put on tap!!! Male and Female alike.

Was told this was by far the best of the 30 or so batches of beer I've made

Thanks for the amazing recipe!! About to go to LHMBS and get more ingredients to make more.

What, no love for a noob?
Seriously though, can anyone comment on the yeast substitution or suggest an alternate?

Well LHBS only has the WLP575, they don't have the WLP500. That's why I was thinking of trying it. I was hoping to make this Friday and doing a starter, so that doesn't leave a lot of time for internet ordering.

Is there another strain that might work?

Sounds like people have been enjoying the AG version too, bet it comes out great!

Edit: Looks like Sudbuster had good luck with WL1214, maybe I'll try some of that.

Wow, 5 gallons of an 8-9% beer drank by 13 people? That must have been one heck of a party.

Mine's been in the primary for about two weeks and still has a very strong alcohol smell. That's okay right? I'm not worried about it being ready anytime soon, I just want to know that it will turn out all right. It smelled fantastic during the initial fermentation.

Well, I tasted my very green batch - undercarbonated, but definitely strong in taste. I ended up enjoying it by sipping - much like a port wine or the like.

I'm hoping that my bottles get fully carbed for a club party this coming Saturday. If not, I've got others on tap, no big deal.
