I've had yeast that I couldn't get a starter going on. (it was old )
I changed up the yeast for something that was in the house since it' over 1 1/2 hours to the brew store.
Next time I made the beer I used the substitute yeast again. It was a surprise improvement.
If it's what you've got, go for it and see what you get.
Let's see if I keep this updated!
