Default Mixing yeast

is it possible to mix different yeast types (ie....california yeast with say london yeast)

not that i am planning on it, but was curious if someone has tried this.

The difference between INVOLVED and COMMITTED is like having bacon and eggs for breakfast.

The chicken was involved, but the pig is committed.

Yes it's possible. White Labs even sell a yeast that is a blend of a few of their strains. I've never tried it or used it but you can do it.
