    Any. All you're doing is carbonating it. If you want to get really fancy, use the conditioning yeast, I believe it's from Fermentis but otherwise, any fairly neutral yeast will do.

    made it without yeast this time, force C02 carbonating it just like the big boy brews I have. But I do want to try the yeast someday.

    I've done it with yeast - you have to make sure that whatever you bottle it in can stand the pressure! Plastic bottles work best, in my experience.
