If you could ever only use four different kinds of yeast for all your beer brewing needs for the rest of your life which 4 strains would make it on your list?

US-05
WLP833 German Bock Lager
WLP002 English Ale
WLP029 Kolsch

The last one is tough. It was a toss up between that and WLP570 Belgian Golden Strong.

This list will definitely change as i continue to brew but so far in my short time brewing my answer would be american ale 1056/wlp001/us-05 british ale 1968 wlp002/ us-04 a german lager yeast and probably a versatile belgian yeast for saisons and belgian ales.
