0.75 lb. Carahell
.15 oz Centennial hops (Bittering)
1.0 oz Glacier hops (Bittering)
0.5 oz Glacier hops (1st Flavoring)
0.5 oz Glacier hops (2nd Flavoring)
0.5 oz Glacier hops (Aroma)
2.0 oz Glacier hops (Dry-hop)
1 tsp. Irish moss
2/3 to 3/4 cup corn sugar to prime
Wyeast 1056

If you want dry yeast, Safale S05 is the same strain as the Wyeast 1056 liquid yeast. That would work well in that recipe.

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.
