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.
