I see torches and pitchforks.... screw Wyeast! I think they are totally different!
It's not like that. I'd just prefer to substantiate with a scientific document is all. If Wyeast is correct, then this information would likely be freely and independently available elsewhere on the internet someplace -- no? I would love to know the truth, that's all I want to know. If it really is all the same species, this does make sense to me, even if it goes against everything that everyone's been taught. The differences are slight to where I can agree that they might truly be the same species. Without substantiation, I just don't know it in my own mind to be fact yet. No torches or pitchforks required.
