S-33 is not a wheat beer yeast and it is generally available for 2 quid or less. £1.40 even....



A mistake I suspect? WB-06 is described as a wheat yeast and is usually around 3 quid.

S-33 is a pretty good yeast, and a bargain, especially at that price. It is a fruity English strain, and a low attenuator, and can take a while to clear, but I have overcome this by pitching a bit of Nottingham or something similar with it. The result is like M36 Liberty bell, which I suspect could be a blend of two yeasts like this - S-33 and Windsor are very similar. Windsor and Nottingham are often co-pitched to achieve fruity flavour with better attenuation and flocculation.

I like S-33 very much for brewing strong ale with much body and a high hop bitterness (60 IBU from bittering charge only). Needs a bit of maturation.

I agree but I now think the Verdant yeast is better for such beers, probably. I'm really liking it. Two good dry options though.

"Unity Brewing CO (Southampton) were one of the first to trial the new (Verdant) strain brewing a range of modern hop forward beers with fantastic results but also tapped in to the versatility of this strain and brewed some dark beers including a full and smooth oatmeal stout and a big and bold Imperial Stout pushing all the way to 10.5% ABV, showcasing how suitable this strain is for dark beer styles and contributing to body and balance. Head Brewer Jim Fullager described some of the results from the initial trials “We really like this strain, it performed reliably and produced delicious beer that achieved characteristics we have previously struggled to get in beers brewed with dried yeast. We intend to use this as our house yeast for all pale ales, IPAs and porters/stouts."
