Long story short*, I wanted to make two batches with the same yeast, but had to get two different strains, WLP001 and WLP051.
I'm thinking about blending these for my brew day tomorrow, and wondering what you all think.
Got two separate starters going now. Should I blend now? Or wait until right before I pitch? Or is this a bad decision all together?
*the long story is: I'm making two Single Hop IPA's with the exact same grain bill, just different hops in each. Obviously using two different yeasts will effect the final flavor. I started with a couple of old 001's I had in the fridge that I rinsed from a previous batch, and I knew they might not be viable. Sure enough, after a day and a half, nothing happening, so off I go to the LHBS for some dry yeast. No dry yeast that I want to use, and very limited on their liquid yeasts. So I decided to get two different strains.
