How do I find out which beers I can use this strain on? This is my first time washing yeast and want to start reusing the yeast. Is it just ales that this yeast will work on?

The WLP051 is a great strain to use on many beers! It doesn’t attenuate like the WlP001 so it tends to stop at a higher FG. I have used this strain from my Blonde to my Porter and my Stout, and had KILLER results. My Stout took 3rd place in the Chico comp the first year I entered it then 2nd the next year using that yeast.
Enjoy this strain its fun to work with, quick starter and when its done..It's done!
