Yeast Substitutions…

Yeah its cool, we all do it.  Last minute brew day and IOB doesn’t have the particular liquid strain on hand?  Don’t freak, a lot of strains are very similar!  Check this chart & see if a in stock dry yeast will work for you…keep in mind: Its still beer brewing yeast & is just as pure, just as good…just not avail in all the different hybrids, blends and cultures that are on the market, but the dry packs are pretty diverse, likely more hearty as the cell counts have been stabilized and are very consistent- often packed with more cells than the equivalent vial or pack.   Not only are they half price, but the shelf life is fantastic!  Have a look & give dry yeast a try!
