    Good question....:ft

    I think I'd still use a yeast that does good on whites, unless you want to try D254 :sh

    Think we can rule out 71B. I'm thinking GRE or W15. Might actually have some GRE at home.

    I paused as well. But then proceeded. Still have time to change my mind though.

    What are you going with?
