I use US05 60-64 quite often, never a problem, lots of Cream Ales and Blondes. In the low 60's,
Wy1010, Wy2112 and Wy2565 also do very good. Tony

Who has the best price on the new-empty 5L mini kegs? It seems there is a drought on these
right now.... at least here in the states. I was wanting to pick up a couple, my LHBS does not
