Do we need to pick a yeast or is either of the Scottish Ale yeasts acceptable?

White Labs - WLP028 states that it doesn't ferment well under 62 degrees F - but that the desired flavors are produced at 65 degrees.

WYeast 1728 doesn't seem to have that limitation.

I'm using white labs, my LHBS doesn't have wyeast and I'd have to pay for ice and express mail to order some online, it's still in the 90s here.

I am going to use East Coast Yeast Scottish Heavy if I can get a hold of it in due time.

Description of ECY07: Leaves a fruity profile with woody, oak esters reminiscent of malt whiskey. Well suited for 90/shilling or heavier ales including old ales and barleywines due to level of attenuation (77-80%) - recommend a dextrinous wort. Suggested fermentation temp: 60-68F.

Sounds like a great yeast - but they sure are cagey about how to get your hands on some - short of driving hours to get to Princeton...

You can call Princton Homebrew show. They will ship. That's what I'll be doing.

Just ordered my stuff for this today. I got 20 lbs of MO, and then also grabbed a pound each of RB and crystal 60 in case I go that route. Got wyeast 1728.

Just thought of something. If anyone plans of trying to get the East Coast Yeast Scottish strain start calling now. I don't know how often drop offs are at the store but it's a small operation.

Notes:
7.19 does seem low, especially if almost 2 gallons are lost to the kettle caramelization right off the bat, followed by a 120 minute boil. Also, how are you planning on getting 82% efficiency with this massive grain bill?

Oh yeah, and, what's the quarter ounce of EKG all about?
