Does anyone know how similar 1056 is to WL001? Is it essentially the same strain of yeast? Are they interchangeable?

One and the same.

Here's a link to a handy comparison chart:Yeast Strains

Basically the same strain, very interchangeable.

For dry yeast US-05 is also said to be the same strain, though some people can tell the differences, perhaps due to very small impurities.

AKA Safale-05. Cali is probably the most common yeast out there.

On the white Labs site, they say optimum temps should be 68-73. For the Wyeast strain they say ferm at 60-72. What gives with the 8 degree difference in the low end?

I guess it doesn't matter, I was just curious. I have a 1056 starter going right now. I think I'll ferment it in the LOW 60's.

I have been very happy with US-05 fermented in the LOW 60s

like 60 or 62

My basement is 61 right now. Need to get another 10 or 20 gallons going
