What kind of yeast do you use for a Wee Heavy

(1/7) > >>

bluesman:
I'm brewing a Wee Heavy next week and have some WLP002. What is your preferred yeast for this beer?

ndcube:
I made my first Wee Heavy today.  I'm using WY1728 as soon as the wort is pitching temp.  Haven't used it in a Wee Heavy but its worked good in the winter for me with other brews.

+1 on the 1728, a perfect match IMO!!! 

blatz:
kinda have to use 1728 on a wee heavy, this one is almost all about the yeast.

if you use 002, it'll be more like an English BW, IMO...

dhacker:
Yep, 1728 gets the nod every time. Blatz is right . . the yeast IS the style!  ;)
