I was given a beligian tripel kit that came with wyeast 3787, it was from november so i decided to go to LHBS and pick up some more yeast to make a starter. The store only had white labs trappist ale 500, would there be any problems if I added the two different yeasts into a starter to make the kit? If so, should I just use the white labs or go to a different store and get the wyeast?

You can mix yeasts, it will taste different but should be fine. Or, make a starter with the liquid yeast...easily done.
