I've been planning to brew a Belgian Stout myself. Like to hear how this turns out. Will you wash the yeast to add to the yeast library?

When it's ready, I'll give feedback for what it's worth. I've never had a Belgian stout before and don't really have anything to compare it against. Nor have I used this yeast before, so it'll be hard to say if I persuade the proper characteristics from this yeast strain or not.

I'd like to do 2-3 more batches with this strain to see what it can do with a Dubbel, Tripel, and Pale Ale...  but we'll see how far I get with that.

Sorry, but I probably won't have a chance to clean and provide a sample for the yeast library. After this first batch, I can probably have some unwashed slurry available if you'd like to come by and pick it up. This will probably be in my primary for 2 weeks or more...
