Hey guys.

Did a search here and on Google and couldn't find very many of the commercial equivalents for Wyeast yeasts. I saw that 1214 is supposed to be Chimay and that 1098 *may* be Whitbread (though 1099 is called Whitbread, so what gives?). And I guess everyone knows 1056 is Sierra Nevada's yeast. Is 1388 Duvel?

I'd like to see if anyone has a complete list, or if anyone has at least more info.

For instance, which yeast is Fullers? Which is Youngs? There is more than one yeast named with London in the name. And which American brewery is 1272 from?

Any links, info or whatnot is greatly appreciated.
