Charlie's Fist Bump Lager Yeast - WLP 1983
WLP1983 Charlie's Fist Bump Lager Yeast (formerly WLP862 Cry Havoc) is a homebrewer’s dream, as it is used in virtually any beer style at both ale and lager temperatures, as well as for cellaring the beer.
From a technical viewpoint, this covers the middle part of the spectrum, giving enough leeway for making very light beers to fermenting medium-high density worts with ease. WLP1983 can be used in IPAs, Pale Ales, Porters, Bocks, Pilsners, Dunkels, and even Weizens with equally good results, so you will definitely find a good use for this strain no matter what type of beer is in the plan for the brewday.
This is the strain that was used by Papazian in all of the beers described in his famous book The Complete Joy of Homebrewing.
