I need some California ale yeast, though my local home brew store doesn't stock it and I can't find an online UK seller who has it in stock either.

Can anyone recommend a suitable alternative?

Wyeast 1056, or White Labs 001 or
Safale US 05 all the same strain.

Another alternative might be Wyeast 1272.

It you're looking for a neutral yeast substitute you can use Nottingham Ale and ferment at lower temps.
