What type of beer you trying to make? Looks like a pretty solid recipe though. I might try US-04 wth that grain bill, but thats just my opinion.

+1. S04 is going to do much better in a brown than S05, in my opinion. especially if you can keep the fermentation cool.

I'd use the 05 over the 33 for that grain bill and what u are trying to achieve. The 05 will still make a good beer though, don't get me wrong. Will be more of an "American" brown vs. "English" brown. Just keep within the recommended temp ranges of 59*-75*f, you'll be fine. Maybe closer to the 59 than the later.
