I have a Belgian Wit on the calendar for later in the spring, maybe use it then...
Its a belgian style dry. I didnt really like it in a pumpkin I made,well at least til a year later. I think most the dry strains are fairly subtle though. Its worth an experiment if you want to though. I think 04 is not very far from 05 also. Maybe because I havent used them at different temps though or something. I think the dry yeast strains are not extemely different. Pretty subtle mostly in my experience and pretty dry and clean as well. Alot of people seem to think windsor will produce a maltier beer,which from my short experience only using it in a few beers it attenuated as good as the rest of the yeasts. I did happen to like a pale ale I made with it more than other yeasts but could be other things as well. I think windsor is a good choice,but if you can splitt it its probably worth a learning experience.
If youve never used either then maybe Id wait for your belgian wit to use the t-58.
