this weekend I am going to go shopping at the LHBS that has wyeast instead of my usual LHBS with WhiteLabs.

I am thinking I should get 2 yeasts for a pale ale that I don't normally use becuase WLP doesnt have them. So far I am thinking Thames and Ringwood. Got the EKG and maris otter so I am thinking a 1.042 pale ale to show off those yeasts. Is there another yeast(s) than those that wyeast makes that I am really missing out on?

My favorite british ale yeast is WLP London so far, Burton tastes just wrong, and I can't really tell Eng and Brit strains apart - I mean that I can - but side by sides are very similiar on bitters I have done. London just rocks!

There is a seasonal yeast, Thames Valley 2, which I've been happy with. I've used it in a pale ale and the yeastcake for a wheatwine. Not sure if it's available now.
I've also been pleased with #1098 and #1028. cheers, tim
You know I'm on the level because, my bubble is in the middle.

Three cheers for Ringwood!!

And Wyeast London Ale yeast is my favourite for bitters, no question about it!
