I'm brewing AHS's Belgian Grand Cru next weekend http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...bcbb5db579c9b9
I wasn't sure when the kit would arrive via UPS, so i didn't opt for purchasing the yeast from AHS so if i wanted to make a starter it would be ready in time for brewing on saturday. I can pick up yeast from my LHBS and go from there.
Anyway, AHS suggests WLP500 (Chimay i think). I've been thinking about experimenting with the recipe and using a different strain. I have limited experience with all the different yeasts out, but Wyeasts Forbidden Fruit and Belgian Ardennes both seem appealing. Anyone offer any idea on how these yeasts would match this kit? I'm looking for a slight tart, crisp, clean strong golden ale.
