Brew another batch of course.
It'll probably make good sourdough bread too.

WL 013 makes a good ESB and EPA.

I just used that yeast to make an ESB. I'm going to be bottling it tomorrow and when I pulled a gravity reading it tasted great. That yeast is also good for a porter, IPA, or Brown Ale. I'm planning on harvesting and doing a porter.

I'm thinking of the Bourbon Barrel Old Ale from Midwest--have a gift cert. for there. It sounds interesting, and their kits have always turned out well.

I used 013 for an English Pale Ale that turned out great and then the slurry for a RIS.

Pretty much any ale will be great with that yeast - it is rumored that Great Lakes uses that as their ale yeast.
