I used Witbread on mine that I brewed last month. Popped the first one earlier in the week and it came out nice and roasty with a hint of chocolate on the finish with a smooth mouth feel. Any of those three should work fine, I just chose the Witbread as it was recommended for the style when I was creating the recipe.

If you use S-04, be sure to keep your fermentation temps in the low 70s. I didn't know before I brewed my oatmeal stout that this yeast throws off serious esters above 65 or so. That didn't mesh so well with the stout.

As far as I know S-04 is the whitbread strain. The equivalent of wyeast 1099.

I use s04 in my breakfast stout at about 66. Seems clean enough for my uneducated palate

S-04.

I think notty will dry it out too much

Thanks for the reply everyone. I went with whitbread as it looks to be pretty similar to s-04 and its liquid so i made a starter.

Good choice. I much prefer the liquid whitbread over the dry S-04 version, which gets really nasty much above 65F.

Mine was fermented at 68 and doesn't have any off flavors from the Whitbread.
