Default Which yeast for Shiner Bock Clone?

Doing a mini-mash this weekend. Shiner Bock clone from austin homebrew.

They give me three options for yeast. Which should I use/order?

S-23 dry lager yeast
German Bock WLP833
Wyeast Munich Lager 2308

Thanks for the help, guys!

833 as long as you're comfortable making a starter. S-23 if not (altho I like W-34/70 better)

I've never made a yeast starter before. Is it as easy as this picture says?...
