That particular recipe had 2 pounds of cane sugar. It makes the yeast crazy. Maybe T-58 is better-behaved. I don't recall any fireworks when I've used it.

550 is a beast. I have one going right; 1 gallon headspace, and fermcap, and I still lost a couple of pints thru the blow-off. This yeast just laughs at fermcap.
