I will start. My soon to be house yeast is 1968. I plan on using it in everything. Clears beers out well, and creates a rich complex beer. I mainly brew pale ales and IPA's. Also, what beers do you brew with your house strain?

Cheers!

L M A O @ Denny

House strain for lagers is W-34/70.

Haven't picked one for ales, but if I had to pick right now probably 1056/S-05. Experimenting with 1272, 1332, and 1450 right now. Definitely like strains that are (a) clean (b) flocculant (c) attenuative (d) effective at low temperatures.
