Default Planned on cultivating pacman...but?

It may be a few days before I will have a stir plate ready, or be able to cultivate pacman. Let me know if any of these other options that are on hand could work. I am more than an hour drive to the local lhbs, so sometimes, I have to make sacrifices.

Nottingham

German Lager

Irish Ale

Trappist High Gravity?

I noticed several of you recommend US05 as a substitute for pacman yeast in Yooper's Dead Guy ale recipe. Wouldn't US04 bring out the malty flavors so much better in this style?

What's the implications of choosing US04 in this case?

IbrewBeer this thread is a bit old and dead.............but 04 would bring out some of the malty flavors and would be acceptable to ferment with. If kept at 60-62 degrees it is very clean.

04 is way too tart and bready IMO. Pacman is an extremely clean yeast.
