Default BierMunchers Cream of 3 crops - Yeast??

I'm making this soon and am looking for a good White Labs or Wyeast

Suggestions?

I'd say any clean fermenting ale yeast, but to true to BierMuncher's style, ya gotta use the US-05.

WHY use Wyeast?
US-05 is his recommendation....I've used it with the best of luck.
I'd hesitate to spend an extra $7 on this batch for Little to NO Improvement.

Up to you though. Do post results if you go the liquid rout.

Um....I took this to mean that it was US-05...that's what I've been using.

Yeah- I went back and edited after checking the recipe thread.

Grinder- if you have some liquid yeast washed from a previous cake, a Kolsch yeast would be nice...

1. I don't even know what US-05 is - can I get it from a local brew shop? I don't think I can. (sorry if that sounds stupid but . . . . )

I've only used White Labs and Wyeast thus - fear of the unknown.

Very easily found in homebrew shops. I usually have at least 5 packets on hand at all times.

Call - not on their website but they have it in stock.

NOW - not ever using a Dry yeast - pretty much like making a starter??

Don't make a starter with dry yeast. You can either pitch it directly or rehydrate first (90 degree water, 10-15 minutes) and then pitch.
