Default 10 Gallon batch split in 2. what yeats to use?

I'm making a pale ale with marris otter, vienna, victory, c60 and c120 using amarillo and simcoe hops. og of 1.058, 45 IBU.

going to split the batch in (2) 6.5 gallon fermentors. one will get WLP001. What would be another good yeast to use? my LBHS carries white labs. Im new to the liquid yeast and only been using S-05. ive done a couple liquid yeast batches but want to experiment with some others.

thanks

How about WLP008 and have a little East Coast vs. West Coast battle.

Same basic idea. Also see Raging Bitch by Flying Dog Brewery, another solid Belgian IPA.

I'd do an English yeast like White Labs 002 or 007. Check out how the ester profile fits your beer vs the neutral 001. I'm using 002 on my next Pale.

My favorite White Labs Belgian is WLP575, which is actually a blend of WLP500, WLP530, and WLP550. Great clove flavors and overall a very smooth flavor profile. Works especially well with hop forward recipes IMO. I did an IPA with it that was very similar to Stones Cali-Belique.

+1 on the WLP575. It's my favorite White Labs Belgian yeast right now. It's a wonderful blend, and I'm surprised that there isn't more talk about it. I try to keep a few vials of it on hand at all times.

In all fairness though, I've yet to use it in a pale ale.
