C'mon, chumley, that's a bit harsh! I want what I want, whether it conforms to style or not.
Right. If you have a clear, specific picture of the final results you want to achieve, then you want to make the best choices at each stage of the process to get you as close as possible to that.
But "close enough for my purposes" is up to each brewer. Frankly, for a Raisin d'Etra clone, even US-05 might be close enough for me.
