Default wrong yeast

I was brewing a dry irish stout yesterday and I pitched the wrong yeast. I was suppose to use safale us-04 and I used safebrew wb-06. Does anybody know the effect it's going to have on my beer?

Oh, my, this should be interesting to see what happens. As I understand it, wb-06 is a Bavarian Wheat Ale yeast, which is a rather flavorful yeast which produces clove and fruit aromas. I have to wonder how that would mix with your typical dry stout wort. I guess the only thing to do is wait and see.

There's no turning back but you can have a very happy accident on your hands or a beer that you have to choke down and move on from.

Some yeasts can do very well when you least expect it though. I'd wait and see. Please do report back, I'm interested in the outcome.

I guess I'll have to wait and see. I'm still a newbie, this is only my 7th brew.

You never know... might be the best beer you've ever brewed.

Well, it is no longer an irish stout. You basically made a dark, roasty hefeweizen. It honestly sounds kinda gross to me. Anyways, good luck!

The Safbrew PDF just says it produces subtl estery & flavor notes typical of wheat beers. So if it produces clove flavors at the lower end of it's fermentation range,that might taste pretty good mixed with the other flavor complexities of the beer. Here's the PDF; http://www.fermentis.com/wp-content/...02/SFBWB06.pdf
