Workhorse Beer Yeast Equivalent Chart (Wyeast/White Labs/Fermentis)

The goal was to create a yeast chart for common beer styles using three major beer yeast producers.  These yeasts may not be exactly equivalent but are comparable and referenced to use for the given beer style.  Experience is expected to vary with the combination of water, malt, hop, yeast, temperature and technique.
