Looking for feedback on the idea of using WLP 530 in a Flat Tire clone. I have never used this strand before nor have I cloned this brew before so I am open to suggestions...

*edit* Fat Tire. I know better.

To me, Fat Tire is an American amber beer, not a Belgian, so I always use a clean, well-attenuating American ale yeast. Like 1056, WLP001, etc. For dry yeast, I'd use S05, or possibly S04 if I wanted a little less attenuation.

What Yooper said. Fat Tire is not a Belgian style beer.

Yeah i learned the hard way and got a kit from Midwest a while back that just came with belgian yeast. It was probably the worst clone kit that is out there. It is major banana bomb and i fermented at a low temp. can't hardly choke it down.
