Personally, 04 and 05 are my favorites.
S-189(only in 500g bricks so far) is a good dry lager yeast( I got 60g's left)
WB-06 and the soon to be released Munich may help with Hefe's
Kolsch really needs its own yeast IMHO
And no Peated or smoked malt will give that Scottish yeast hint of smoke flavor(I love Scottish beers)

But depending on yr grain bill, US-05 -OR- S-04 -OR- Notty can all pass off a decent Scottish ale....

Anyone try the Danstar Munich yet? ( http://www.northernbrewer.com/dried-yeast.html )

never tried s-189, but brewferms lager yeast isn't very good. W-06 isn't bad, but it's not that great of a hefe yeast. I've used it and it's pretty bland, but can do the trick.

as for the scottish beers, they really do derive that earthy, slightly smokey flavor from the yeast and the cool ferment ... I just don't think it's possible to find that flavor in a dry yeast.

But I keep a spare pack of S-04, a spare Notty, and a spare Pasteur Champagne in the fridge.
Yep, Same here on th 05. Love the stuff.

I'd stay away from the Muntons yeasts personally. I've had nothing but bad luck with them.

Anyone changing their mind after the recent issues with Notty? Personally, I haven't had any issues but people seems to be struggling with it.

The only dry yeast I really like is Windsor. The rest are just too attenuative and too neutral for me (or start producing bad-tasting esters when pushed); I want a yeast with some character. Nottingham is a decent choice for when I'm looking for a neutral, attenuative yeast - but that's not really all that often.
