White Labs To Wyeast Chart

There’s a lot of recipes that you find on the internet or in books that either have white labs or wyeast yeast, but rarely does it have what the equivalent one is in the other brand.  At Jay’s Brewing we sell White Labs yeast.  I am partial to white labs because I’ve only had good experiences with it but that just may be me.  When I’ve used wyeast in the past, I end up looking like I am doing an impression of a crazy from a halloween movie just punching the bag not knowing if I have broken the capsule in the middle.  With that said everyone has there preference just my own personal experience with wyeast.

With all that said here is a reference chart though of wyeast to the equivalent white labs.  This usually comes in handy when transcribing recipes.
