Dry yeast sub. for Y1084/WLP004

Any suggestions for a suitable dry yeast subsitution for Wyeast 1084 (Irish ale) or White Labs 004??? It will be fermenting approximately 2.5 gallons of oatmeal(-like) stout.

I'm leaning towards S-04.

If you want it as an English style, the 04 shouldwork. I'd probably go with 05. Nottingham would be another good choice.

I think I'd select between the S-04 and danstar windsor, I find the Nottingham a little tart and the 05 a little too clean, but certainly "clean" can be nice.

Don't let the 04 get too warm!

IMHO the tartness goes well with a stout.

Alright... went with the S-04. Thought about US-05, but went S-04 with no better reason that I have not yet tried it.

Holy crap is that a fast yeast.

Yep, it's fast and it clears well, too, though you probably won't notice it too much in a stout.
