This says 1338 was dropped by Wyeast. WLP-011 is still on NB's website.

Want to try it in a Holiday Ale.

Don't know how I missed that.  Yeah just rechecked and they do have it.
Thanks

I would try wlp036, or wlp029. The attenuation is a bit higher on 29, so adjust your mash temp accordingly. The numbers and description seem to match up well with wlp011 for wlp036. I haven't personally used it, but it should do well. Are you looking for a dry yeast recommendation?

Thats not a bad suggestion. I've used both 1450 and 011. 1450 will be more attenuative and 011 will floc better. 011 is extremely clean at 58-60F. I havent used 1450 that low yet to say but its pretty darn clean at 63F.

No problem with 1450 at 58F.

Denny,
Used 1450 last year in several recipes and loved it.  Want to try something a bit different

1007 or 1056 cold might be the next closest IME.
