I would suggest you buy a yeast that will add flavor and character...
When I used dry yeast I would just pour it into some OJ for a few hours and it would be fine.
It's an extract brew but not a kit like you would think. Just some extract, yeast and hops. I bought some grains to steep and some finishing hops. I am just going to boil some water and throw the yeast in to hydrate then before I pitch I am going to proof with some regular sugar to make sure it's good.
My local shop has absolutely nothing as far as yeast goes. It's basically coopers brewers yeast. thats it.
