Default Splitting ECY01 vial?

I'm going to be moving into a new house soon after relocating for work and would like to get my sour pipeline up and running again. I ordered a vial of ECY01 and will be brewing two five gallon batches in April. Do any of you have any experience with splitting a vial this way? I was originally going to do one with the ECY and one with WY3278, but if ECY is superior (like I hear it is), I figure I can use it for both if it's possible.

Any thoughts?

What style of beer are you going for? Assuming its some sort of Lambic-esque wort then you'll be fine splitting the vial between 2x 5 gallon ferments. A lot of people around here do that including myself, stress the sacch a little bit for some esters that Brett will work on over time.

If you're doing a Flanders Red or something bigger you may want to look at pitching rates.

Yeah, lambic-esque. 1.05'ish and pale. Thanks for the advice. At $11 a vial, it's nice to be able to split it.
