Default Fuller's London Porter Clone - Yeast Choice?

I know, you will all recommend that expensive White Labs WLP002. But I am brewing today and will not get a vial. I love the Danstar strains. So, what do you think -

Should I use Windsor or Nottingham?

Any recomendations?

Well, I'm not sure which would work better for the nailing your clone, but I did a porter with windsor and it was really good. It's not a high attenuator, so the beer was a little sweet and malty. But I really liked it, balanced against the dark roasted grains.

I'n not necessarily looking for an exact clone, but I had the recipe from the BYO book. I wanted to brew a porter, so I emulated that recipe more than cloning it.

I used some Northern Brewer's in the kettle and finished it out with EKG's. I think that I will use the Windsor; I wanted to hear that someone had used that strain in a porter before trying it.
