I don't have experience with that yeast. But, I can't see why it wouldn't work as long as it's a neutral, and alcohol tolerant strain.

These are the chips I used



But I am sure the ones you have will work just fine too.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure they will too...I almost ordered the other ones but then thought, "wth....I should at least try this!" So, I am planning to use a muslin bag after sifting all the dusty particles out and just hanging on to the main chip pieces. Looking forward to it. Will be brewing on Tuesday I think!

BTW, how many days do you get your starter going prior to brewing? I figured I'd get it started Saturday afternoon/night and that would be enough time by Tuesday afternoon for pitching. I will most likely just pitch the whole thing and not decant.

Agree those chips are a-ok.

My starters is typically 36 hrs old when I pitch, and I pitch the whole thing and never decant. Haven't had any problems yet.

I brewed this one today. The only thing i altered in the recipe was adding in 2 C of sugar, figured its a strong ale...wth lets make it put my friends on their ass after having one, lol. Even with that extra sugar added I must have killed the efficiency (havent plugged into beer smith yet) but my OG came out at 1.091-1.092.

Oh i did screw up when making my starter, the WL060 was shaken by my son and i didnt realize it so when i opened it to add to the mini wort....yea, went all over. So what i did get added is now mixed with WL001 because thats what i had in the fridge. Kinda curious how the mix will turn out.
