Why not use the liquid yeast? I would probably sub Nottingham, if I were to sub.

Edit: Of course, I know nothing about yeast, so I would go with Yoopers idea

If you have the liquid yeast, and the capability to make a starter I would strongly suggest doing so.

That said, Wyeast 1056 is an American Ale yeast strain, you probably wouldn't be too far off if you used some Safale US-05.

I didn't even look at your hop bill before, but Glacier is a fantastic hop.

I'm not sure how to make a starter, I'll do some research on that. Being my first brew ever thought dry would be easier. A starter probably requires some time and I have no idea how long the process will last.

You can save the 1056 until you're more comfortable with the brewing process, and sub Safeale S-05 in the mean time.

I just dump it in a mason jar with luke warm water and some sugar and let it sit for a several hours, and I get a foamy mess and dump into my beer.

Honestly, I used liquid yeast without a starter on many of my first brews. Never had a problem. Just follow the steps listed on the package. I do use a starter now though, since it is recommended.
