Hello all. I am making a couple of Stone clones tomorrow, 1 is the Russian Imperial Stout and the other is Ruination, however they call for WL002 Yeast and all I have is Wyeast 1056, 1098 and 2112 they are all the large Activator packs. If one is acceptable can I split it into 2 starters because I only have one of each! Thanks!

Rumor has it that what they use is closer (or is) to WLP007 Dry English Ale. The attenuation would suggest this. I don't know about Wyeast products but maybe see if you have one similiar to that.

WLP007 = Wyeast 1098, I believe.

Wyeast 1098 = WLP007
Wyeast 1056 = WLP001
Wyeast 2112 = WLP810
and yes you can split it into two starters but they may have to be stepped up to get a decent pitching rate, don't believe you can do that overnight.....
