WLP001
« on: August 01, 2023, 09:13:03 am »
Been doing some reading and a recipe I found calls for WLP001 liquid. But, not ever having much luck with liquids in the past, I saw that there is a WLP001 dry version. Has anybody tried it and how were the results? I have a package of BRY97 that I could use but not sure if that would be the same thing. Any input is always welcome.

The WLP dry is way over $10. Not with my budget.

The dry is 9.99 on Morebeer.  But I am wondering if the Bry97 I have will work.

BRY-97 or US-05 will work just fine. Unless you did a side-by-side comparison, you'd likely never perceive a difference in beers brewed with any of the three.

Sure. There will be a difference but not in a negative way

Unfortunately, they don't carry White Labs.

MoreBeer has Cellar Science CALI dry yeast for $3.99 for a 12g packet. The description makes it sound a lot like the other yeasts mentioned above. I have used it twice with good results.
Original Gravity - that would be Newton's

Awesome, thanks all.  I have a packet of BRY97 in the fridge that is begging to be used, and I have Cali as well slated for a SMASH that I am going to try.  So, with that said, I think I am going to take the WLP001 off my cart and go with what I already have.  Next up, some research on how to cultivate yeast from already done brews.  I figure at this point, if I can do that and have a few strains on deck, it will save me about 10 bucks a batch.  Thanks to all who replied and keep the posts coming, I am learning as I go.

RiteBrew has BRY-97 for $3.59 and US-05 for $2.79. Buy 10 packets (mix & match) and get $0.40 off per pack. It's the best deal I've found on dry yeast.

They didn't have BRY-97 a while back so this is good to see.
Checken their page, it is there.

I wasn't aware there was a dry WLP001. I thought this post was about dry yeast alternatives to WLP001 such as 97 and 05. I must be on crazy pills.
EDIT: I guess I am on crazy pills. Had no idea White Labs had dry yeast. My bad.
