Is there a list somewhere of yeast substitutes. In particular I want a dry substitute for wyeast 1968, I'm thinking Safale S-04 Dry Ale Yeast but if you know of something better let me know. If there's a site with a list of strain substitutes I'd like that as this won't be the only time/strain I'll want a substitute.
Thanks.

Yes that yeast substitution will work just fine.

As for a list of yeast substitutions, I can't find anything for dry to liquid, but here is a list of the two major liquid brands and their compatibliltity.

Safale US-05 is a good substitute for Wyeast 1056 and WLP-001

I think that link is broken.

I would use S-04 or Danstar Windsor. In a pinch Nottingham can MAYBE work since it is technically English Ale yeast.
