I've used 1056 more than any other yeast and while it is certainly a work horse in fermenter it seems to lack a little extra something that makes a good beer a great beer. I think it's a great beginner yeast though. When in doubt you can't really go wrong if you want dry, clear and neutral.

I've used 1272 a few times and it usually finishes a point higher or so than the 1056. The LHBS pushes this strain over 1056 but honestly I don't see what it brings to the table. For me there was always an off flavor when I used this yeast. It's fairly neutral like 1056 but not quite as attenuative.

I've used 1098 once and thought it did an exception job. It finished a 1.053 beer in 4 days and cleared within 5! I ran 1272 along side it and the 1272 took a week to finish and 3 weeks to clear. I have been trying to make a Fat Tire Clone for a year and a half now and I think i got the grain bill now but the fermentation with 1056/1272/1762 weren't right (especially not the 1762, which is what NB pushes for their kit). The final beer was crystal clear, clean, low in esters and malty. I currently have 1098 doing another Fat Tire attempt (minor grain bill adjustment and brewing water adjustment). If this one also turns out good I might consider doing an IPA with it.

I just used 1450 for the first time last week in an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink IPA. I can report on that in a month or so but that'll only be 1 experience.

I just bought some friday from my LHBS. He had three packs of it and they were all relatively fresh. Not past their prime at least. Might be a deal where the shop has to sell brewcraft kits since those come with rogue stickers for some of them.

I poked around, found a few online venders with it. MoreBeer & Rebel brewer...

$8 for a clean sample or $12 for a 6 pack of Dead Guy and the joy of stepping up a culture....

Dead Guy is the one beer I didn't have luck harvesting.
might have been old though.
