Yeast Strains


Yeast Strain Comparison Chart (White Labs, Wyeast)

This info was put together by Kristen England.  He says, "I tried to get the exact source of each breweries yeast and if I was confident I was correct I put the original brewery.  If I have evidence of a yeast strain but NOT am not 100% confident I put my idea and a '?'.  If you have any questions, comments or input please let me know."
