Two options that don't match your styles but are KILLER dry yeasts from my experience as well
are Danstar Belle Saison and Mangrove Jack's M27 Saison. You may not be interested in

The temperature range you gave is pretty much textbook for most dry ale yeasts - so you should
be able to ferment all those beers with quite a few different yeasts. Now...do you mean the

In fact, rereading what you posted, other than the mash temp you did everything you could to
give that yeast the best possible environment to eat everything possible - rehydrated, pitched
a proper amo...

153 isn't super low for a mash temp - pretty middle of the road. However you've got 11 lb of 2

I once heard someone who should have known better say that mash temperatures don't make a bit

An actual bittering addition (the sort usually boiled for 60 minutes or so) isn't really
necessary especially in a "hop bursted" IPA/IIPA recipe like this, so you may be fine for
bitterness, HOWEVER w...
