Default Ed Wort, what would you recommend I do to your Robust Porter recipe with WL 002?

Hi guys, I figured I'd address this to Ed since it was his recipe, but feel free to chime in.

I want to brew his Robust Porter recipe, but I want to use some WhiteLabs 002 English Ale yeast from another different batch. White Labs recommends this yeast for a robust porter.

How would you alter the recipe for this lower attenuating yeast? Would you not use the malto dextrin? Anything else? Additions, subtractions?

How do you think this yeast will change the beer?

Thanks
Beehive

WLP 002 is the Fullers yeast I believe, which should make a wonderful Porter

Edworts recipe is for a robust porter, I think the WLP002 yeast is more geared toward a brown porter since it doesn't anntenuate as much. Edwort has nottingham in the recipe with is a champ for anntenuation. If you want the english taste but a bit more attenuation, you could go with WLP005.

P.S. I am about to pitch some WLP002 on a RIS that is just about done boiling.
