I am preparing to order a Big River Brown Ale from midwestern and was wondering what difference the offered yeasts have on the brew. There are four : London Ale Wyeast 1028, Munton's 6 gm dry yeast, London Ale Activator Wyeast 1028, and White Labs British Ale 005. What do you think?

Pistol Wavin' New Haven, for now...
The two wyeast strains are the same, they say the activator doesn't require a starter but I typically just get the propagator pack fr a couple bucks less and make a starter. The White Labs strain is similar to the Wyeast, though I've never used the W.L. strain before. Most dry yeasts are good to use, and you don't need a starter, but I've never used Munton's, I usually use Nottingham for a dry English yeast

The Munton's will probably have the highest FG and give you a sweeter finish. Then 1028, with WL005 being the driest.
