      For bakers yeast I used Freshman's Fast Rise with good results.  Smell was great too.  I know nothing about ale yeast.  I will be making my own yeast and enzymes, so I would suggest that you also look into making your own yeast.  It may not be perfect, but it will allow you to create your own flavor profile unique to what you are trying to make for yourself.  Remember that first run flavor comes from your grains, malts, and yeast.

      Subject: [new_distillers] which yeast do you prefer

      I want to run four washes of which all components are the exact same:  Amount of sugar, amount of water, heat, SG, etc....However, I want to use a bakers yeast, wine yeast (I already have lalvin EC-1118), a turbo (black bull from Brewhaus) and an ale yeast.  Which bakers yeast and ale yeast do you recommend?  I want to see which one has the purest flavor and trying to get at least 160 proof plus. Thanks for the help.
