    I have been looking for a comprehensive yeast cross reference chart, and haven't found anything comprehensive on Brewer's Friend, or in Google searches.

    Does anyone know of a good chart, or database?

    Mr Malty has one put together by Kris England. Like all yeast charts, it should be taken with a grain of salt. Sometimes these charts contradict each other. Some say WLP830 and 34/70 are an exact match, others say 2007 and 34/70 are exact. I think it's a lot of speculation.

    I like that one^^^ for sourcing and liquid yeast comparison but it doesn't include any dry yeasts.

    Also, in most cases, these are quite removed from their original sources. From some 1980's literature I could gather that 34/70 is indeed Weihenstephan's strain but who knows how far it is from the original now? Yeast evolves very quickly.

    Thanks guys
    I guess it can be pretty subjective, probably why we don't have a cross reference database on this site.
