Hey, go with what works. I only used oats once and I didn't care for it but that is by no means a final determination. 

I use the Wyeast Kolsch yeast and it takes forever to drop. I thought aboot (I'm Canadian) using the WLP to see if it was better.  Seems it may not be.  Thanks.

I used wy2565 kolsch in a white IPA with 5 lbs of malted wheat and it still dropped clear after a few weeks in the keg. Never tried the wlp version, so I can't compare.
