Looking for your opinions on your favorite ale yeast when brewing an American Pale Ale. I don't brew ales often enough to have a solid choice.
I have an affinity to using dry yeasts but am considering using liquid for this. Its cold enough that I won't worry about getting ruined yeast ordering online.
I was leaning towards US-05 or WL-001 and possibly WL-051
My recipe is simple. 2 row pale, 6% C-60 and 5% victory malt.
Hops will be El Dorado @ 60,45,30
Wai-iti @15,10,5 & knockout.
Maybe 1 or 2 dry hoppings.
For something like that my go to would be US-05 or Bry-97 if going dry yeast. Maybe even Nottingham or S-04 if you wanted something a little different, a little drier or less West Coast Style. I use dry yeast a lot and I certainly have some favorites.
