........and if so, how did it turn out? I can't get my hands on WLP002 so I thought about substituting with 001 which I have in my fridge. TIA
Try 007, better attenuation than 002
I personally have only brewed an ESB with 007, but I don't see why 001 wouldn't work. You probably would have more of the hop flavor come through with the 001
I would go ahead and go with the 001 then. Are you going to dry hop?
No. It will have a lot of late addition hops (only EKG) but still have about 45 IBUs
I think the 001 would be fine, especially with the late additions
No prob, good luck with the brew
