I'm in the Saf-05 crowd, although I've never tried Notty. It always gives me a nice clean beer.

I never use liquid for standard ales any more.

Nottingham. Great for big clean beers. Takes off like a rocket and drops like a rock when done.

How do you like that S-33? I have a pack that I just bought in an assortment and never quite figured out what style of beer it would be good for.

I just used it in my Witbier. Its ok but next time I'm using liquid. It was too neutral for the Wit style...

Don't go by what it says on their site, (belgian flavors my a$$) it makes a nice English ale, a little fruitier and maltier than 04 or Nottingham

So it's not going to replace WLP-400 any time soon. Oh well... the Belgians are the last thing keeping me from sticking with dry yeast exclusively.

T-58 makes an acceptable Wit. I don't understand why they label S-33 as Belgian, it's the Edme strain

Scotch ales, hefe's, kolsches and lagers don't have a suitable dry yeast either. a Kolsch you could probably get away with an 05, but for the extra $5, I'd rather have a more drinkable beer.

Personally, 04 and 05 are my favorites.
