Default Best yeast for stout

Going to make a Brewhouse stout from a no-boile kit (bladder bag) in the next day or two. Is there any specific type of yeast that works well with stouts. Do I need to make a started? Any advice would be appreciated

I think it just says stout on it. Not anything particular

Not sure what a brewhouse stout or a bladder bag is but I like S-04 for stouts. Easy to handle (just rehydrate), quick fermenter and nice flavor profile.

I like WL irish ale yeast for stouts. No need to re-hydrate.

Yeah, S-04 would work fine. You rehydrate dry yeast in about half a cup of warm water in advance of pouring it into the fermenter. I usually sprinkle it on top of the water, let sit, covered, for 10 minutes, stir, sit, again covered, for an additional 10 minutes, stir and pitch. Just make sure everything is sanitized, stir spoon, foil cover, and you don't want hot water, warm ~80 degrees is all I use.

Yes, that one would be well hydrated in its package!

I have never rehydrated safale-04 even in my big batches.. It's not necessary is it? Did a AG strong scotch ale for st patties day and it took off like a rocket..

The Brewhouse's website suggests Wyeast 1084, but of course there are other choices.
