Default What type of yeast for Wassail?

I am going to be brewing up a batch of Wassail for the first time later today and I am looking for a suggestion on what type of ale yeast to try. Maybe a dry S-04 or Wyeast 1007 German Ale? The local place only carries Wyeast wet packets and a few varieties of dry stuff.

Use S-04. All the extra ingredients in wassail will mask anything the yeast might add.
