Default yeast sub?

I have a site for hop subs ; is there someting out there for yeast subs? This way if you don't have the right yeast you can get something close.

There is no site I can think of besides this one. Just use the search function and you'll be able to get yeast substitution ideas.

I'm trying to catalog every brew online so I don't have to keep notes all over the house. Check it out on my blog site below:

You could try BYO Yeast.

Pick the style of beer you are going to brew from the drop down list and it will recommend potential yeast varieties. Lists flocculation, type, lab, attenuation, temp range and gives a general description of the yeast. Should be able to help you find a comparable substitution.

This may help.


or Wyeast has a yeast style guide with recommendations for yeast for each style of brew.
