Dry yeast substitute for Wyeast Irish Ale
« on: October 31, 2018, 04:34:51 PM »
Hey all,

I'm looking to make a dry Irish Stout but substitute a dry yeast for the Wyeast Irish Ale. What are your suggestions?

Cheers,
Brandon

Nottingham
US-05 (1056 is listed as sub for the style on their site) - I know, it's not the same...
maybe S-04 fermented cool
On Tap/Bottled: Golsch, What'Cha Want Honey Wheat, Hopfenbier, Salted berry cider

Fermenting: Iliff IPA
Up Next: Rye Cream Ale

I've always used Nottingham in my dry stouts. It stays out of the way and lets the malt profile dominate as it should.

BRY-97 English ale yeast works great in stout.

Any will work.  S-04 or Notty are the most obvious choices.
