My parents are flying from Kansas to come visit this Friday for two weeks. I am in Hawaii. I am wanting to do a 8-10 day Pale Ale for my Dad, but my LHBS (only one on the Island) is out of my 1st choice (WLP 090), and 2nd choice (WLP 001). I tweaked one of the recipe's from the Zymurgy issue that had the 6-10 day recipes.
My options are- WLP 002, 004, 005, 007, 013, 041, and 862. There are a few other White Labs yeasts that are in stock, but I don't think they would work well.
I can get dry yeast no problem, but I just really have had great results with White Labs and would like to stick with one of their strains.
I am thinking WLP 041, or WLP 862 with a starter. Any advice? I am not too sure the Cry Havoc would be that great for a fast-turn around, but maybe it is. I haven't ever used any of these strains, so any advice would be appreciated. Should I just go with some dry yeast? I have access to US-04, 05; Nottingham, Cooper's, Munton's,
