I have lots of 3787 around (it's my dubbel yeast) and I was going to try to use something new....but I think I'm convinced to stick with it.

I still really like WLP550 for my "American Tripel", granted, I haven't tried any other yeasts with this latest incarnation, but you should give it a shot at some time.

As long as it doesn't taste like cloves and bananas, I'm good....;)

Then don't use 510. Worst Tripel Ever. Wait, I take that back, I had worse at Big Al's Brewing Co. in Seattle. Blech  :'(

Used the 530 extensively. Experimented with it several times in the lower ranges sub 65F. Didn't like results. Not at all. Keep it a little warmer LOL.

That's odd... I've used this multiple times and never had those flavors.  I ferment cool (pitch in the high 50s, let it rise to about 70) since it's the Orval strain and they do too.

I brewed a beer with 510 and found it to be extremely clean for a belgian yeast.  It was fermented in the low 60s.
