Subject: Wyeast Whitbread / Barleywine yeasts

Wyeast #1098 is (allegedly) the Whitbread 3-strain.

I would use Wyeast #1056, "American Ale" which is (allegedly) the
Sierra Nevada yeast. Whereas the Whitbread is a fine yeast, I,
personally, feel that Whitbread beer has too "breadlike" a flavor,
so I've avoided Whitbread yeast. If you like the flavor of Whitbread
beer, then you've got a choice. I'd skip the wine yeast.

While I'm at it, someone (sorry) asked if Bell's beers have culturable
yeast in them. They certainly do have yeast in the bottom of the
bottle, but I don't know if it's culturable -- try it.
