Thanks for the link. I've seen that spec sheet before, but I don't know of a correlation between the ability to metabolize acidity and low pH tolerance. Perhaps the ability to metabolize acidity comes from not being able to tolerate low pH.
I had been using the following Wyeast strains for meadmaking: 4184, 4242, 4783, and 2124 (yes 2124). They seem to be tolerant well into the low pH 3 range.
I've been experimenting with dry strains lately. I like their ease of use, but is the trade-off for this ease of use the need for closer pH monitoring?
