I'm new into home brewing and about to start my first brown ale but I'm trying to decide between London ale yeast and British Whitbread Ale yeast - anyone have any suggestions??

btw here's what I'm working with:

7lbs Liquid Pale Malt extract
.25 lb biscuit
.5 lb crystal 60
.25 lb chocolate
.12lb roasted barley

1 oz Challenger - 60min
1 oz Goldings - 0 min

Whirfloc 15 min.

Recipe looks fine, though I would wholly recommend using the London Ale yeast. It makes a killer English-style brown and is one of my favorites for the style.
