Hey, great idea. I almost bought some of the Greenbelt but I thought I'd wait awhile and see how others like it. Subscribed!

I think a better comparison would be with 051/1272... sounds like their characteristics are even closer.

yes, they went to wyeast and asked them to come up with a yeast for them. Looks pretty good too

I use WLP001/Wyeast 1056 for all of my IPA/APAs, hence my choice for this comparison.

I was thinking of doing the exact same thing! I very much look forward to your results.

Greenbelt is sitting on the stir plate...

Guess this officially a go!

I'm taking good notes so if there's anything to be learned, hopefully I can figure it out

I was going to do this exact same thing, but now through the beauty of the internet, I can follow your results instead!

I'm particularly interested in what difference it brings out in the hops. Being that I am not an IPA guy, big, bitter hop characteristics are not my style, BUT, if this yeast was able to make the flavors pop without the bitterness my sensitive palate does not enjoy, it might be something I would be interested in.

UPDATE: Both starters have been made, the WLP001 is cold crashing in the fridge.

Grain is measured, and getting ready to crush.

I'm modifying the hop schedule a little - I really like late/dry additions of Summit, as it has a great citrus flavor/aroma which should add to this experiment.

2 oz Magnum @ 60
2 oz Cascade @ 15
1 oz Cascade @ 5
1 oz Summit @ 5
1 oz Cascade @ dry
1 oz Summit @ dry
