I have to admit 1728 is probably my favourite ale strain.

Yeah, it has been my house ale strain for a solid year now. I suppose part of it is that I just know how to work it to get what I want out of it, but any strain that can go from dry to slightly smoked to fruity and full-bodied checks all my boxes. It's vastly underrated imho.

I've recently started really digging 1272. Used it on my last 4 batches (APA, cream ale, stout, barleywine) and am about to use it in an IPA.

It is very underrated and very versatile. It also tolerates low oxygen worts with ease. While that's perhaps not a necessity for most, it's very convenient for those w/o oxygen setups or anyone feeling a bit lazy.

That's a nice yeast, too. Sort of in between the classic American and English styles. While the finished product can be very good, I've never used it, so I can't comment on how easy it is to use.

If I was brewing all of these styles in a commercial setting where fermentation time and/or flocculation were all issues, I'd go with PACMAN. It's like a better version of wy1056.

Edit- I want to change my vote! I just remember that I've used Wyeast 1335 in English and American styles, and like it better! Ferment it cool for a "clean" crisp dry finish, ferment it warmer for English beers. It's an English strain, so it drops well and leaves a clear beer behind but it's not wildly fruity at all.
Just used 1335 in a robust porter yesterday.
