I used S-04 yeast for this, but if I made it again I would probably go with Wyeast 1007 (German Ale) or Nottingham as it is a cleaner profile.

I updated the first post.

If you wanted to, I would use nottingham or even safale S-05 as they are cleaner yeasts.

What is the mash temp for this? Would 152-154 for 60 minutes be ok?
