I am of the belief that German hefeweizen strains and Belgian strains are very very closely related. Perhaps all are in a new unidentified species, since they are indeed so unique compared to others.

US-05 and BRY 97 are not the same yeast strain. US-05 is BRY 96.
BRY 96 = Ballantine "Beer," "Chico," Wyeast 1056, White Labs WLP001, and Fermentis US-05
BRY 97 = Ballantine "Ale," Anchor Liberty Ale, Wyeast 1272, White Labs WLP051, and Lallemand BRY 97
This is fantastic information, thank you for sharing! Where do you find stuff like this, anyway?
*some homebrew forums may be declining...
Does anyone know how German breweries oxygenate? Is it within the rules of Reinheitsgebot to inject pure O2 into the wort?
I have been wondering for a while if maybe the popularity of homebrewing is beginning to fade a bit. I only say this because it seems like many of the popular homebrewing forums are not nearly as busy as they were 3-4 years ago. It would seem that if there are more homebrewers the forums would be busier than ever with various questions/issues. Not really seeing it.....
