I think either 029 Kolsch or 007 Dry English Ale. Both can be used in a wide range of styles. 007 is close to the house yeast Stone uses....

White and Phun - would you utilize the saison strain across a wide scope of beers?

I wouldn't use a Saison strain across a wide range of beers..maybe as an experiment but not as an everyday yeast. The Kolsch yeast would be good for any beer that you want to be "lager like". It still is relatively clean up to 65 degrees. The Dry English yeast (007) can be used in the vast majority of beers...especially Pales and IPA's!!

Yep....This exactly.

I like 029 for brewing a "clean" beer. Like Phunhog said, it gives Lager like results without have to ferment very cool. A Saison is good for that style, but could impart some flavors that might be considered off in other styles.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm leaning towards the Irish ale strain. Apparently I can get 1450 from a supplier over here. Add in the English strain and we should be good to go for a bit.
Next step is to try to slant the yeast so we have a bit of a yeast bank!

In your situation, slanting seems like a necessity.

Good luck, and good brewing!
