So, okay, here's the deal:
2
Originally I put this list of "equivalents" together for my own personal use. But I shared it with a few people, and they seemed to find it useful, so…
3
that's how you got here, obviously. Welcome. Hope you find it useful too. I understand it can be a little confusing, so here's some general stuff:
4
Each line contains approximate "equivalent" yeast strains (or ones shown "NOT" to be equivalents, where noted) from different manufacturers.
5
By "equivalent", I mean "close enough, for most intents & purposes". These will usually not be 100% identical, but 95% should be pretty darn close.
6
Sources include actual genomic testing, review of real people's actual tasting results, and my own personal reviews and analysis of various data.
7
The list is generally arranged in order by White Labs first, then Wyeast. (Hey, it's MY list.)
8
Mangrove Jack doesn't make their own yeast, they just repack yeast from others. So of the options out there, another is either the same or it's a blend.
9
Sorry, no, I don't have Imperial or Omega or kveik or several other recent developments on here yet. You can figure out some stuff yourself, for now.
10
Sorry, no, I am NOT going to add the probable source breweries for every line on here. Reason being, most sources on sources are in fact WRONG.
11
You might want to do word searches to find your favorite yeasts. Hit Control-F then type in a search term, hit Enter a few times until you find it.
12
To add constructive feedback, you can message me on any forum and I may consider it. My username everywhere is dmtaylor, dmtaylo1, or dmtaylo2.

14
Have fun trying new yeasts that you never thought you'd try before! I love to split batches to compare. Experiment, learn, and share results. Cheers!
