Yeast strain comparison chart

I came across this great yeast comparison chart the other day and just had to share it here. Bryan Peretto, of the “Knights of the Mashing Fork” put this together and posted it on their website. Some substitutions are exact matches, while others are similar strains that are comparable. The version I have may be outdated, so be sure to check out their site for the most up-to-date version. Since I use mainly Wyeast products, that’s all I have put on here.

  1. While I had updated this list heavily, I recently discovered that the original list (which, too, was being updated seperately) should be attributed to Kristen England (the original copy I had did not reveal any author). I have updated my site to reflect that information.
