Looks good, I used the WLP670 last year.  It takes a wicked long time to develop the sour character (a couple months for my saison) as promised in the yeast description.  Are you planning to let it sour?

My plan really only goes through initial fermentation.  Did you age it in a standard carboy?  I am interested in comparing the two yeast strains and seeing if I can get some tropical fruit from Citra & Galaxy into the beer.

 I love some sour....maybe I'll split the secondary into a small carboy and 3-gal keg.  Thanks!
Cheers,

Timmy

Yes, I fermented in a 6.5gal carboy for 4 weeks and aged in 5gal carboy.  Both were glass.  Sounds like a fun experiment.
