I have a wlp007 Dry English and wlp028 Edinburgh yeast cakes to put a Barley Wine on. Which would you choose? Or not choose and why? Cheers

Haven't tried the Edinburgh, but 007 would dry the barleywine out more than I would like.

That was the reason I wasn't leaning toward the 007 possibly too dry.

And here you are getting my hopes up about Cake, when we have that "German chocolate cake" discussion going on in the other thread.

Thanks for the cake-tease, guys.

The only other thing I can think of is yeast alcohol tolerance.....does one have a much higher threshold than the other? If it's quite different and you're expecting a real big barleywine, maybe go with the higher threshold yeast.....just thinking out loud
