WLP200 (Best of Both Worlds) was a mix of WLP001 (Chico) and WLP002 ( English Ale) . I really like how the blend works for me starting at about 66-67. I did buy WLP200 back in the day but can not for the life of me remember what the beer was like.


I really liked the one beer I've made with the dry yeast mix so far. Better than either by itself in my opinion.

I'd be curious to know if you get the same characteristics if you try it again.  Generally, co-pitching yeast is a crapshoot.

Seeing I am the one that mentioned co-pitching and I have done it on about 6-8 beer recently I will answer that yes, I get the same characteristics.

That's great to hear.  You seem to be an anomaly, but in a GOOD way!

I've got two more so I'll have to let you know what I experience.

Maybe the dry yeast tends to be more repeatable. Not sure if you are thinking of liquid yeast blends or not.

I've tried both with inconsistent results, and that;'s what others have told me their experience was, also.

what was the inconsistency?  which yeast flavor profile dominates?  I would think that would be the major difference.

FYI:  I placed an order on Amazon for some wheat, Saaz pellets, DME, 34/70 and the Diamond Lager yeast.  I have enough liquid lager yeast around so both of these (plus some S-189 that I have) will all be backup/plan-B yeasts.

yep, there's no way to guarantee which will dominate

I can live with that with the S-04 and US-05 mix.  it seems like you are more likely to hit the attenuation of US-05 regardless of the flavor profile so I'd take it as a win.  there are other combos where I might want to be more sure of which yeast will dominate the flavor profile.
