If you're using dry yeast, can you get Danstar (Nottingham, Winsor, or Munich...). Around here, it is cheaper than Safale and it is always a fast starter for me (fast, like noticable activitiy in 6-8 hours).

... you can save/wash/reuse the US-05 just as easily...

I realize I'm reviving a dead post, but I've found that the performance of US-05 and WYeast 1056 are very similar for the end product. (sorry i don't use white labs [nothing against it though])

I have noticed that WYeast is a little cleaner though. I have observed that two identical amber ales have slightly different clarity. US-05 takes off better and fermentation is slightly faster.

Just an FYI...

So which one is more clear for you? One of them is clearer for me as well.

How different are WL001 (California ale) and WL006 (American Ale) from Wyeast 1056 and US-05?
